After a holiday break, the platformFresh Eye is back to offer you the fifth screening from a film program called Cultural Wars. So far the film series has offered documentary portraits of important and visionary individuals like Joseph Beuys, Donna Haraway, Yayoi Kusama and Barbara Rubin. This time, Fresh Eye in collaboration with ArtMap and Documentary Mondays (powered by Cinema Světozor) invites you to experience a unique story of a collective pioneering jazz label Blue Note Records.
One of the most important record labels in the history of jazz — and, by extension, that of American music — Blue Note Records has been home to such groundbreaking artists as Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Bud Powell and Art Blakey, as well as present-day luminaries like Robert Glasper, Ambrose Akinmusire and Norah Jones. Through rare archival footage, current recording sessions and conversations with Blue Note artists, the film reveals a powerful mission and illuminates the vital connections between jazz and hip hop.
