Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Blue Note Records is more than just a label. It is the heart of jazz. It is Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Bud Powell, Sonny Rollins and the ubiquitous Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers--all making their most significant early recordings under the auspices of the Blue Note genius. This book, the first if its kind, chronicles the life of the most famous and influential jazz label of them all. Blue Note Records is still the conspicuous arbiter of style that continues to have influence. Here is the detailed history of the label from the beginning days in 1939: from the development, to the rise, fall and rebirth: Richard Cook examines life behind the scenes and a parallel analysis of all the major records released throughout Blue Note's history.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 235-240), discography (p. 241-263), and index.
