Présentation de l'éditeur
Blue Note is a record label that stands for much more than just the extraordinary music in its catalogue. The label's story has hitherto been told only through collections of art and photography, foregrounding the label as an arbiter of style that continues to have an impact far beyond the music industry. Francis Wolff's amazing photography, coupled with Reid Miles' sleeve designs, set an unrepeatable standard which has become a classic design symbol. But of course it was not only style, elegance and finesse in design that set Blue Note apart, as its list of musicians and groups from its golden era in the fifties and sixties shows: Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Bud Powell, Sonny Rollins and - perhaps the archetypal Blue Note group - Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers all made their most significant early recordings under the auspices of the Blue Note genius.The body of this book is a detailed history of the label from its beginnings in 1939, its development, rise, fall and amazing rebirth under the EMI umbrella in the last fifteen years. Also included is a parallel analysis of all the major records released by the label throughout its astonishing history. Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Jackie McLean and Sonny Rollins, a few of the surviving figures central to the label's importance, have all been interviewed specifically for this book, a book which tells how and why Blue Note Rec --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

images vraiment médiocres pour illustrer le propos qui est (je ne l' avais pas perçu ) en anglais. Dommage, cela mériterait une traduction.

I am just going to say the book isn't all bad, but it sure isn't good either. Man am I glad I found money or sometimes just lied my butt off to have originals of Art Hode, Bechet, Monk 78's and many many original recordings on first edition vinyl including Herbie Nichols, Clark Trio (never could con anyone out of his best know album and too many to list here (which I know you can get all on cd here), my turntable has an Ortofon head (again you can find here, if you don't know what that cost, man you are reading the wrong review, thankfully and sadly a very good man died for me to have it). Do yourself a favor, get a used paperback, if you want it in your library or read a borrowed copy. Better Yet get the Thames or Cronicle Books copy of the Blue Note 75th Anniversary book here on Amazon. A steal at any price if you love Jazz!

Yes, I was hoping for some sort of in-depth tell-all... However,what I came across was a pretty good read and better than most(of this type) overview of a record company. Blue Note certainly deserves MORE...and it will come. But I must say that I did enjoy the book and that it was both entertaining and informative. The author does "intrude" with his own personal taste as to let's say Dexter Gordon's works...but heh, I agree with him on this...& I found his observations on the many other STARS: Art Blakey, Horace Silver, Lee Morgan...etc, to be pretty much ON TARGET....according to ME...but I'm no expert. I will say that reading this book has encouraged me to seek out certain composers/leaders & their works & has helped in building a jazz collection of Blue Note classics...& after all, isn't that what it's all about.....

I was disappointed with the fairly dry presentation of material that I expected to be so interesting. The book is not without it's merits for the jazz lover who enjoys the recordings described. there is some inside info here but not much that couldn't be gathered from reading the excellent liner notes on the cd's themselves. The music captured on the Blue Note label is one of the great joys of my life. The RVG series of reissues on CD are consistently outstanding and capture a cultural period that was almost unbelievable in terms of the talent and creativity being expressed. I bought this book because I couldn't resist the desire to know as much as possible about the period and the personalities involved. The treatment here is adequate at best and at times quite dull. Sorry, but I can't give this more than 3 stars and that is based on the subject matter more than the style in which it is presented.

I'm not a jazz "expert." The jazz I like tends to be older, such as Miles, Brubeck, Coltrane, and Horace Silver. I picked up this history of Blue Note after seeing it reviewed in Rolling Stone, and I was not disappointed. It's a great story of the classic age of jazz! There are great sketches of dozens of major artists, and the story of the company itself is fascinating, including how they got the Blue Note "sound" in the studio. If what you want is an exhaustive list cross-referencing every session drummer and bass player, this isn't it. But if you want to get the sound and feel for what it must have been like at those 3 AM sessions, this is a great book.
