It would take a book to cite all the iconic recording sessions issued under Blue Note's imprimatur since Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff launched the record company in 1939. In this celebration of the label that defines the down-home, funky sound known as hard bop, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra will revisit previous arrangements and unveil innovative new ones of iconic repertoire by Horace Silver, Sonny Clark, Joe Henderson, and other label greats. JD Allen and JLCO’s Ryan Kisor serve as featured soloists.
