Blue Note Records Turns 75: New Vinyl Releases, and a Cool Museum Exhibit Celebrate the Anniversary. | Blue Note Jazz Record Collecting and Listening | Scoop.it
Blue Note Records is considered by many to be the greatest independent jazz label of all time. I know it is my favorite label, the music, the album covers, the entire history is priceless.
Blue Note Collector's insight:

Some very interesting reissue on vinyl to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Blue Note Records. Joe Lovano gets Quartets and Rush Hour released on vinyl.

Blue Note Collector's insight:

I hope they do something unique, and don't just rehash the same stuff, Die hard fans already have this music in every format available. I think there is a bigger t-shirt, drink coaster, iphone skin market out there for the cover art.

 

How about some Blue Note blowing sessions, maybe former artists like Wayne Shorter and Sonny Rollins getting together to play a mix of new and old stuff in the hard bop style?

 

Maybe Joe Lovano and Horace Silver could team up? Benny Golson I bet could arrange another killer album for Blue Note 75? Of course use vintage Reid Miles style cover art. Just dreaming.

Blue Note Collector's insight:

Soul jazz is one of those genres that get's dismissed by neo con jazz protectors as a sellout, but really is the ability to dance to it such a crime? I happen to think commercial sensibilities and serious  jazz improvisation can coincide.

Vintage Blue Note Records: How to Identify an Original LP Pressing | Blue Note Jazz Record Collecting and Listening | Scoop.it
Are you a fan of the Blue Note sound? I know I am, for years I was a big CD collector, always anticipating the next new reissue or box set. I became such a fanatic of the album art that I went out and bought a few books that highlighted some of the best al...
Blue Note Collector's insight:

If you are a new collector of Blue Note vinyl, especially if you have money to spend, make sure you know the meaning of the label address so you don't burned when it comes to bid on and auction.

 

Also if you are a seller, you better know what you are dealing with, so you don't give away a thousand dollar record for a song.

 

Plus you need to know identifying features in the dead wax that all serious buyers want to know about before a purchase.
