Director:Sophie Huber
(85 min)

Founded in New York in 1939 by German refugees Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff (with funding from communist writer Max Margulis), Blue Note became a congenial home to the likes of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Thelonius Monk, Bud Powell and so many others—the list of stars who recorded for the label is, frankly, astounding. Lion and Wolff were true fans, and they were willing to cater to the artists in any way the artists wanted, just so the duo could capture the music as it was meant to be heard, without compromise.
