    The GRAMMY Museum will host a special screening of the documentary film, Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes, followed by a post-screening discussion with the film’s Director Sophie Huber and three-time GRAMMY-nominated Musician/Producer Terrace Martin, who is featured in the film and has worked with artists such as Kendrick Lamar (To Pimp A Butterfly) and Herbie Hancock, bringing jazz and hip hop together. The conversation will be moderated by Scott Goldman.

    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. Founded in New York in 1939 by German Jewish refugees Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff, the history of Blue Note Records goes beyond the landmark recordings, encompassing the pursuit of musical freedom, the conflict between art and commerce and the idea of music as a transformative and revolutionary force. Through rare archival footage, current recording sessions and conversations with jazz icons Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and today’s groundbreaking Blue Note musicians,Blue Note Records: Beyond the Notes uncovers a history of jazz that remains fiercely political and relevant today.
