BLUE NOTE, the jazz imprint absolutely without parallel since 1939, has announced a new series of vinyl-only remasters and reissues to run from December into the middle part of 2021.
Sixteen titles, all all-time classics of the jazz world, are up for inclusion so far in the Blue Note Classic Vinyl Reissue Series – a continuation of the Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series that began in 2019.
The new series will again feature strickly analogue remasters directly from the original tapes, and heavyweight 180-gramme pressings.
The next 14 in the series will be released in pairs once a month, with releases already set until next summer. They are as follows:
January 15th, 2021: Horace Silver’s Song for My Father and Wayne Shorter’s Speak No Evil;
February 12th: Cannonball Adderley’s Somethin’ Else and Joe Henderson’s Page One;
March 12th: Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers’ Moanin’ and Hank Mobley’s Soul Station;
April 9th: Sonny Clark’s Cool Struttin’ and Jimmy Smith’s Back At The Chicken Shack;
May 14th: Dexter Gordon’s GO! and Eric Dolphy’s Out To Lunch;
June 11th: Grant Green’s Idle Moments and Kenny Burrell’s Midnight Blue, and
July 9th: Freddie Hubbard’s Ready for Freddie and Herbie Hancock’s Maiden Voyage.
Now there’s a treat for the jazz fan in your life.
