Blue Note Records: the biography
Secker & Warburg, 1 січ. 2001 р. - 276 стор.
The first book to chronicle the life of the famous and influential jazz label. Blue Note stands for more than just extraordinary music; its photography and jacket designs became an arbiter of style. Musicians 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 records at Blue Note. This book details the history of the label from its beginnings in 1939, along with a parallel analysis of all the major records it released.
