Blue Note Re:imagined II released today.

(Press release)

The second instalment of the Blue Note Re:imagined series, featuring reworked and newly recorded Blue Note classics from an array of rising UK stars, is released today (Friday September 30).

A prime example of the eight-decade-plus power of Blue Note’s jazz to endure and inspire future generations to keep creating anew, the Re:Imagined series taps into the burgeoning UK jazz scene that has found global popularity over the last decade. Volume two sees the likes of fast-emerging vocalists Cherise, Ego Ella May, Maya Delilah and Kay Young, 9-piece afro-jazz outfit Nubiyan Twist and an array of trailblazing instrumentalists including Binker Golding, Yazz Ahmed, Daniel Casimir, Theon Cross and Reuben James reimagining tracks from Blue Note’s most legendary alumni including Donald Byrd, Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, Marlena Shaw and Cassandra Wilson.

 Blue Note President Don Was:

 

For more than eight decades the artists of Blue Note Records have continually pushed the envelope of contemporary music, and Blue Note Re:imagined II once again honors that legacy by letting the UK’s most creative young artists reinvent the treasures of the Blue Note catalog through their own lens.”
