Inside the Blue Note nightclub one night in 1959 Paris, an aged, ailing jazz man coaxes an eloquent wail from his tenor sax. Outside, a young Parisian too broke to buy a glass of wine strains to hear those notes. Soon they will form a friendship that sparks a burst of genius in director Bertrand Tavernier’s Round Midight, starring bebop legend Dexter Gordon.
