Happy May Day! Celebrate springtime with a new edition of The Blue Note Monthly featuring Bill Charlap Trio’s sprightly take on Hoagy Carmichael’s “One Morning In May” from his 2002 album “Stardust”:

Blue Note Records is an American jazz record label, owned by Universal Music Group and currently operated in conjunction with Decca Records. Established in 1939 by Alfred Lion and Max Margulis, it derives its name from the characteristic “blue notes” of jazz and the blues. Originally dedicated to recording traditional jazz and small group swing, from 1947 the label began to switch its attention to modern jazz. While the original company did not itself record many of the pioneers of bebop, significant exceptions are Thelonious Monk, Fats Navarro and Bud Powell.
