Editorial Reviews

Review

“From 1939 until the late 1960s, much of the best in recorded mainstream jazz was issued on the Blue Note label, which set the standard for excellence in both music and production. The company was sold in 1965, and by the time of its demise in 1981 had begun to emphasize jazz-rock fusion music. Recently, however, Capitol Records resurrected the name with the stated intention of returning to the values of the original owners. The present work provides complete discographical information on every recording made or issued by Blue Note. Included is also an index of listed artists, a history of the label, and 11 pages of photographs. Although partial discographies of the Blue Note catalog have been published previously, this is the first comprehensive one to appear. One of the authors is an acknowledged authority on Blue Note and the other is a widely published discographer. Because of the importance of Blue Note in the history of jazz, this meticulously prepared book would be a worthwhile addition to any music reference section in either public or academic libraries.”–Choice

“Jazz record collectors have been frustrated for years by incomplete, often inaccurate discographies, but Michael Cuscuna (a veteran jazz producer and extraordinary archivist) and Michel Ruppli have compiled a thorough documentation of sessions recorded or leased by the historic Blue Note label. . . . The wealth of information and detail in this work is incredible. . . . Michael Cuscuna's tireless capacity for research. Numerous cross references, including 10-inch albums, foreign issues, cassette and compact disc catalog numbers make the book easy to use . . . well worth the investment.”–Chattanooga News
