75 Years of Blue Note

Episode 3: Sound & design.
Alfred Lion has once again started working together with Thelonious Monk, and pianist Horace Silver is the artist who will have a big contribution to the sound of Blue Note. Rudy van Gelder’s recording studio will be a trademark of the label, just like the LP’s cover design.

Blue Note celebrates their 75th birthday today. How much do you know about this record label’s jazz music? In this series of 16 episodes, the history of Blue Note will be illustrated bit by bit. In playing authentic recordings of artists released by Blue Note, we take a step back in time to the year 1939, and reflect on the musical developments and the driving forces behind this label: Alfred Lion, Francis Wolff, Rudy van Gelder and Reid Miles. We also focus on important jazz musicians who have contributed to the typical sound of Blute Note, such as Thelonious Monk, Bud Powell, Horace Silver, Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins, Hank Mobley and Dexter Gordon.
