With a mutual passion for music and a profound belief in equality, two German-Jewish
immigrants forge the most iconic jazz label in industry history. Escaping Nazi Berlin, jazz
lovers Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff became New York record producers, launching the
careers of giants like Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, and Herbie
Hancock. As blacks faced blatant discrimination, refugees Lion and Wolff saw kindred spirits,
and in turn, treated musicians with respect as artists and equals. With a thrumming
soundtrack, artful animation, and interviews, this must-see for jazz aficionados is a timeless tale of the American Dream.
