Blue Note turns 80!

The 'hard bop' tag stuck for some two decades or so, the heyday of the Blue Note record label. Either side of this golden period Alfred Lion's company promoted hot jazz from its inception in 1939 into the forties later embracing seventies soul jazz artists. Iconic designs adorned LP covers, often with Francis Wolff's evocative photography. Now, eight decades on, with a coincidental resurgent market in vinyl, Blue Note 80 is a reissue series of some of those albums you once owned or perhaps wished you had. Visit your local specialist dealer - they are out there - and place your order!

Good to see Blue Note thriving. I cherish my original pieces of vinyl such as Dexter Gordon, Art Blakey, Lee Morgan etc. just as I do the many Blue Note CDs I've acquired. If you're not a vinyl buff then CD versions of the original Blue Notes can usually be picked up for around a fiver or less!
