We're all in, and we're doing our part to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Blue Note Records with a special issue. Over 150 pages focused solely on Blue Note, spanning the label's storied past up through the present day and with a peek into the future. We've interviewed some of Blue Note's rising new stars and we've compiled material from All About Jazz's rich archive including past chats with Chairman Emeritus Bruce Lundvall and legendary recording engineer Rudy van Gelder.
And that's not all!
We've packed this issue with classic Francis Wolff photos, Reid Miles' iconic album cover designs, vinyl and CD reviews, all topped off with another must-read Genius Guide to Jazz installment, "A Brief, Yet Largely Incomprehensible, History of Blue Note."
Enjoy, and please share this edition with your friends through the issuu.com platform or through your favorite social network or social bookmarking website.
