DocHouse: Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes

As some of Blue Notes’ biggest artists, including Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, convene for an all stars album, they reflect on the outsized influence the label has had on their careers.

Tracing Blue Notes’ collaboration with jazz greats like Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane and Miles Davis, the film highlights how the focus on freedom of expression over the bottom line allowed artists to flourish.

Throughout, the freewheeling music championed by the label changed with the age, evolving from the politically turbulent sixties to the current embracing of a hip hop aesthetic that reflects our troubled times.

The screening on Saturday 16 March will be followed by a director Q&A.
