THE RECORD MAN

Dir. Mark Moormann
(110 min, USA/Bahamas. 2015)
Documentary
Mid-Atlantic Premiere

Brooklyn-born Henry Stone exported the music of Miami to the world. From distributing records out of his ‘48 Packard to establishing the largest independent label of the 1970’s, he was a shrewd record executive with an ear for hits and a knack for discovering talent.

His chart-topping artists (soul legend Betty Wright, KC and the Sunshine Band, George McCrae) led to the original Miami Sound and the birth of Disco with the song, “Rock Your Baby.”

Co-presented by the Art Museum of the Americas and the Documentary Center at The George Washington University
