Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series

Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series

Profile:
In honor of Blue Note Records’ 80th Anniversary, the legendary Jazz label is launching the Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series. Distinct from the Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series, this 2nd series curated by Don Was and Cem Kurosman features mid-priced 180g vinyl releases in standard packaging with albums spanning the many eras of the label’s history presented by themes: Blue Note Debuts, Blue Grooves, Great Reid Miles Covers, Blue Note Live, and Blue Note Drummer Leaders. The series launches May 10 with the reissue of 3 remarkable Blue Note debuts—Herbie Hancock Takin’ Off, Dexter Gordon Doin’ Allright, and Robert Glasper Canvas—and will continue with 3 albums released each month for the coming year.

The series will be all-analog whenever an analog source is available with Kevin Gray mastering directly from the original master tapes. The albums will be pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal in Germany.

These pressings are incredible regardless of price. At this price I’ve been able to grab 11/12 so far. I never thought I’d have this sound on blue note in my home and now I can actually afford to get bunches of ‘me. Together with the Tone Poet series, so much great jazz is within reach. Keep these two series going!

Bang for the buck co-champs with Tone Poet. Wow!! Incredible selections that average humans can afford and appreciate in a way that they should be heard.
