i can't agree with the previous comments. this isn't a concert film 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 idea that people would rather talk about music than play 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, every day, as well as live at clubs every night. yet there are only a handful of documentary films about it. is there really an annoying glut of jazz docs? does it really crowd out the actual music itself? of course people should listen to the music itself, but a film like this just adds rich context, behind the scenes history, & insight into the characters on the scene that you don't get from listening to the music alone. it can only add to ones appreciation. i thought it was beautiful
