Blue Note Records: The Iconic Jazz Label and Its Stars

Sep 16

Blue Note Records has produced some of most iconic jazz recordings ever. From John Coltrane to Cannonball Adderley, the label has been home to nearly every major jazz artist of each era. Names like Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, Art Blakey, Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, Herbie Hancock, Sonny Rollins and Eric Dolphy have all graced the albums of Blue Note Records. As the premiere jazz label in the world, Blue Note recorded a variety of jazz styles from hard bop to avant-garde to free jazz. Additionally, the album cover art was as influential in the world of graphic design as the music was in the world of jazz. The CJO will perform favorites from Blue Note’s legendary catalog and relive the jazz milestones that influenced so many.
