This 2013 film by German filmmaker Uli Gaulke
follows the seven musicians of the Chinese ensemble "Peace Old Jazz Band"--which has been playing every evening at the Peace Hotel in Shanghai for more than thirty years--on an adventurous appearance at the North Sea Jazz Festival in Rotterdam. Most members of the band, all jazz musicians of the first rank, are older than 80 years. Against the backdrop of great jazz hymns, the film charts with humor and music the fascinating life stories of these exceptional musicians from the Japanese occupation to the Cultural Revolution right up to today's turbo planned economy.

This event, produced by the Goethe-Institut, is officially recognized as part of the Kennedy Center Blue Note at 75 celebration
