Blue Note Records Celebrates it’s 80th Anniversary. On January 6th the legendary Blue Note Records celebrated it’s 80th Anniversary, and is planning some big surprises over the next few weeks! Blue Note was originally the brain child of jazz fan Alfred Lion who recorded his first session with two boogie woogie jazz pianists. Since then the label has grown to include names like Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and Herbie Hancock on their roster.
Throughout 2019 Blue Note Records will be celebrating the 80th Anniversary with vinyl catalog reissues, the Blue Note Review boxset subscription series, a documentary film, live events, branded apparel, art prints of classic Blue Note imagery, streaming initiatives and more, which Blue Note will be unveiling throughout the year.
