Acclaimed Debut On 180g Double LP!
Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series!
In honor of Blue Note Records’ 80th Anniversary, the legendary Jazz label is launching the Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series. Distinct from the Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series, this 2nd series curated by Don Was and Cem Kurosman features mid-priced 180g vinyl releases in standard packaging with albums spanning the many eras of the label’s history presented by themes: Blue Note Debuts, Blue Grooves, Great Reid Miles Covers, Blue Note Live, and Blue Note Drummer Leaders.
On his acclaimed 2005 Blue Note debut Canvas, pianist and composer Robert Glasper proved he had jazz chops in abundance with his acoustic trio featuring bassist Vicente Archer and drummer Damion Reid, while a hip hop sub context lay just beneath the surface in the album’s skittering beats, hinting at future directions that Glasper would take on albums like the GRAMMY-winning Black Radio years later. The album featured special guests Mark Turner on tenor saxophone plus vocalist Bilal.
