The Blue Note 7

On January 13, Blue Note Records will commemorate the label’s 70th anniversary with the release (CD & Digital) of Mosaic: A Celebration of Blue Note Records, an eight-song collection of classic Blue Note repertoire re- envisioned by The Blue Note 7, an all-star tribute band comprised of current jazz luminaries. The all-star septet includes:
pianist, musical director and current Blue Note recording artist Bill Charlap with:
trumpeter Nicholas Payton
tenor saxophonist Ravi Coltrane
alto saxophonist/flutist Steve Wilson
guitarist Peter Bernstein
bassist Peter Washington
drummer Lewis Nash. Mosaic features new versions of jazz classics such as Thelonious Monk’s “Criss Cross,” Herbie Hancock’s “Dolphin Dance,” McCoy Tyner’s “Search For Peace” and Art Blakey And The Jazz Messengers’ “Mosaic.” “We chose to record compositions that would honor the label and its key players, whittling it down to eight of our favorites from Blue Note’s wide-ranging and extensive catalog,” Charlap says. More arrangements of songs from the Blue Note library will be created for The Blue Note 7 tour, which began on January 7 in Yakima, Washington, and continues with stops in over 50 cities across North America

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
