It Must Schwing! The Blue Note Story

Blue Note Records famously dedicated itself exclusively to the recording of American jazz music and developed its own unmistakable recording style and sound. With an impressive roster of international jazz stars including Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Wayne Shorter, Thelonious Monk, and Quincy Jones, the label provided a platform forAfro-American musicians, treating them as artists and equals at a time when they were discriminated against and ostracized. It Must Schwing! is the surprising and moving story of two friends, émigrés from Berlin united by a passionate love for jazz and a profound belief in equality and freedom for every single human being, who founded the legendary jazz label 80 years ago.
