Jazzfilm: It Must Schwing – the blue note story
«It must schwing – the blue note story»
Director: Eric Friedler, Germany 2019 (115 min)
Blue Note Records discovered and produced an impressive roster of international jazz stars. This included Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Wayne Shorter, Thelonious Monk and Quincy Jones. At a time when Afro-American musicians in the USA were discriminated against and ostracised, Blue Note records respected them as artists and equals. Not only did the label value their talents, it also gave them a much-needed platform.
“It Must Schwing!” tells the moving story of two friends, united by a passionate love for jazz, and of their profound belief in equality and freedom for every single human being.
