Well made doco' that explains the roots of hip hop, the passion of jazz muso's and the record label founders that recorded them for the love of the music and self expression. You don't have to be a jazz or blues fan to enjoy it but I'm sure it helps. It's a trip from the '20s through to the present. If you don't get jazz, there's a chance you just might after seeing this movie.
