This week, we finish tracking Volume 1 of the Blue Note Review, which is now out-of-print. Volume 2 just arrived and you can listen for it in the months ahead. We also feature selections from Sonny Rollins at his first full recording date as a leader from December 1951. But, of course, there's more—see for yourself, below. Enjoy the show! Next week, it's a February 1969 Blue Note 50th anniversary recording and BN-6 from Sidney Bechet.
