Since it was launched in 1939 by childhood friends Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff, Blue Note Records has been the premier label in jazz, recording the greatest artists of the genre. Blue Note’s catalog of music features an impressive array of legendary performances and a core list of “must-have” releases that indelibly marked the history of jazz. To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Blue Note legacy, an all-star band featuring some of today’s finest musicians will travel the world celebrating this rich treasure trove of music. Led by Blue Note Records artist and pianist, Bill Charlap, the group will explore classic tunes by Bud Powell, Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver, Herbie Hancock, Lee Morgan, Wayne Shorter, and many others.
