Jazz at Lincoln Center hosts the Best of Blue Note Festival November 13-18 in New York City, and one lucky winner will receive a pair of tickets to the Saturday, November 17th The Best of Blue Note performance (8pm at Rose Theater), while another lucky winner will receive 10 CDs from the Blue Note Records catalog (see below). The winners will be announced on November 13th.
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 with Wynton Marsalis 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.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
