Time Out says

Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff, two young Jewish friends from Berlin, arrived in New York in the 1930s on the run from Nazism. They landed in love with jazz, and found a deeply racist society that denigrated the artists they considered brilliant. With the will to vindicate them and expand their music, they founded Blue Note Records, the label that would become the most important in the history of modern jazz, signing artists such as Thelonious Monk, Miles Davis, Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins, among many others. Wim Wenders is the producer of this documentary with tons of swing (or 'sccchhhhwing'), directed by Eric Friedler.
