    From Blue Note: “”Jutta Hipp with Zoot Sims” 

    Blue Note

    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.

    HERBIE HANCOCK SPEAK LIKE A CHILD 50TH ANNIVERSARY

    From Blue Note: “Blue Train (LIMITED EDITION) John Coltrane” 

    1

    Blue Train (LIMITED EDITION)
    John Coltrane
    $29.98

    Tracks

    1.Blue Train
    2.Moment’s Notice
    3.Locomotion
    4.I’m Old Fashioned
    5.Lazy Bird

    Limited edition 180-gram blue vinyl with black swirls! Only 1000 available for the world.

    Blue Train can easily be considered in and among the most important and influential entries not only of John Coltrane’s career, but of the entire genre of jazz music as well. On this album, Coltrane reinvents himself as a multifaceted interpreter of both hard bop as well as sensitive balladry — touching upon all forms in between. Released on Blue Note in 1957, Blue Train is the only album Coltrane recorded for Blue Note as a leader (although he was never formally signed to the label). Featured on the album are Coltrane on tenor sax, Lee Morgan on trumpet, Curtis Fuller on trombone, Kenny Drew on piano, Paul Chambers on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums. It was recorded at Van Gelder Studio in Hackensack, New Jersey.
