Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series Curated by Don Was and Cem Kurosman; Blue Note Live, Part 1 Themed Installment Presented on 180g Vinyl LP.

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 second series curated by Don Was and Cem Kurosman features 180g vinyl LP 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. The series resumes in November 2019 with Part 1 of the Blue Note Live theme  –  Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers – Meet You at the Jazz Corner of the World Vol. 1 and 2 (1960), Horace Silver Doin’ The Thing (1961) and Grant Green – Alive! (1970) – and will continue with three albums released each month for the coming year.

“We’d like for you all to help us get in the groove, let your hair down, and come on and get in the music with us,” says Horace Silver in the spoken introduction to Doin’ The Thing, the only live album the great pianist made during his remarkable three-decade tenure on Blue Note Records. Recorded in May 1961 at the Village Gate in NYC, this exuberant live date featured Silver’s great quintet with trumpeter Blue Mitchell, tenor saxophonist Junior Cook, bassist Gene Taylor, and drummer Roy Brooks on a set of sterling Silver original compositions.

This Blue Note 80 Vinyl Edition is all-analog, mastered by Kevin Gray from the original master tapes, and pressed on 180g vinyl at Optimal.
