Blue Note - A Story of Modern Jazz 1997
Description: "It gotta schwing!" was the motto of Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff, two German Jewish immigrants who in 1939 set up Blue Note Records, the jazz label that was home to such greats as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon and Sonny Rollins. Blue Note, the most successful film ever made about jazz, is a testimony to the passion and vision of these two boys and certainly swings like the propulsive sounds that made their label so famous.
Released: 01 Oct 1999 Director: Julian Benedikt, Andreas Morell Writers: Julian Benedikt Actors: Freddie Hubbard, Gil Melle, Herbie Hancock, Horace Silver Genres: Documentary, Music

A Whole Lott More #

Released 4/28/2013

Description: For decades in Toledo, Ohio, Lott Industries has excelled at manufacturing tiny vehicle parts. All 1,200 Lott employees have developmental disabilities, yet the company competes with traditional non-disabled businesses and achieves the highest quality ratings. When the US auto industry crisis hits, however, Lott's store is wiped out and president Joan Browne has 12 months to reinvent or close the doors. For the workers, the stakes are even higher since their jobs are a refuge, not only from the impoverishment that affects the majority of America's disabled, but from social isolation. For employees Kevin, Wanda and T.J., work is more than just a direly required paycheck, it's a lifeline, a symbol of their dignity, and their dreams made real. The race to search a fresh business plan drives this engrossing recession economy drama, but it's the humanity the movie restores to the balance sheet that makes A Entire Lott More such a rare achievement.

Blue Note - A Story of Modern Jazz Reviews:

i can't accept with the previous comments. this isn't a concert movie it's a documentary of blue note records, its aims, its history and accomplishments, its genesis, its impact, the milieu, and even the nuts and bolts.the concept that folks would rather talk about melody than enjoy it is silly, are the two mutually exclusive? jazz is played on the radio on at least hundreds of stations at all hours of the day, each day, as well as live at clubs each night. yet there are only a handful of documentary movies about it. is there really an annoying glut of jazz docs? does it really crowd out the current melody itself? of course folks could listen to the melody itself, but a movie like this just adds rich context, behind the scenes history, & insight into the characters on the stage that you don't receive from listening to the melody alone. it can only add to ones appreciation. i thought it was pretty


This is not so much a history of Blue Note Records or even a history of jazz in the Blue Note era, but now a love note to one boy never shown in this documentary for more than a moment or two until the end: Alfred Lion, a German expatriate who left his home, eventually came to Fresh York and co-founded Blue Note in 1939 and ran the label until 1967.True enough, folks talk about another things: about the history and venues of jazz, about Thelonius Monk, whom Lion championed despite being said that he had no technique and no technical training (I happen to admire Monk without being able to play him, so I accept with the majority opinion at the beginning). But even when they seem to be talking about another things -- like Kareen Abdul Jabar talking about basketball squads -- it all leads back to Lion.


A bizarrely and sadly incoherent collection of fascinating clips and interviews, with several entire performances (Cassandra Wilson's appearance an exception for some reason.) The melody is wonderful, if frustratingly edited, and the visuals are all over the zone with historical and recreated movie footage. Why do movie makers (and public radio poobahs) prefer talking about melody to testing it? If you're fascinated with this nice period of American artistic creation (and you could be) do watch it in spite of itself. If you're hoping to learn about it, spend your cash on CDs. Better yet, haunt the used record shops and search those original LPs with brilliant cover art and the greatest liner notes ever.
