Synopsis: BLUE NOTE: UNCOMPROMISING EXPRESSION: 75 YEARS OF THE FINEST IN JAZZ

Released to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the coolest and best- known label in jazz, this book celebrates over seven decades of extraordinary music from a company that has stayed true to its founders commitment to Uncompromising Expression. Tracing the evolution of jazz from the boogie- woogie and swing of the 1930s, through bebop, funk and fusion, to the eclectic mix Blue Note releases today, the book also narrates a complex social history from the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany to the developments in music and technology in the late 20th century. Blue Note is not only known as the purveyor of extraordinary jazz but is also famous as an arbiter of cool. The photography of co-founder Francis Wolff and the cover designs of Reid Miles were integral to the labels success and this highly illustrated, landmark publication featuring the very best photographs, covers, and ephemera from the archives, including never-before-published material commemorates Blue Notes momentous contribution to jazz, to art and design as well as to revolutionizing the music business.

about author

Writer and music curator Richard Havers talks to broadcaster David Freeman about 75 years of Blue Note, the definitive jazz label. The talk will be illustrated by the playing of music from some of the greats who have recorded for the label, which include Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Bud Powell and Norah Jones. Havers has compiled the first illustrated history of the label from its start in 1939 to the present day and has picked out 75 key albums to mark the anniversary.
Havers has curated box sets on the music of Louis Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald and is also author of an anniversary book on the jazz label Verve.
