Blue Note Records

Blue Note Records has aimed to uphold that distinction over the nearly 70 years since its first recording session. Founded as a small independent label, Blue Note has gone on to become the premiere Jazz label in the world, and also the longest running.

It took the joining of many natural forces to create and define one of the greatest Jazz labels there has ever been: Jazz-loving German immigrants on the run from Nazism (Alfred Lion & Francis Wolff), a New Jersey optometrist moonlighting as a recording engineer (Rudy Van Gelder), a classical music-loving commercial designer (Reid Miles), and slews of the most incredible musicians that have ever walked the earth (too many to name them all here). The elements that each brought to the table—impeccable A&R instincts, elegant and insightful photography, sterling sound quality, strikingly original cover artwork, and consistently transcendent music—were all essential to the label's early success, the whole could not have existed without each of the parts.
