Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series Curated by Don Was and Cem Kurosman; Inaugural Blue Note Debuts (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 launches in May 2019 with the reissue of three remarkable Blue Note debuts – Herbie Hancock Takin' Off, Dexter Gordon Doin' Allright, and Robert Glasper Canvas – and will continue with three albums released each month for the coming year. On his excellent debut album Takin' Off – recorded and released in 1962 – jazz legend Herbie Hancock arrived fully formed at the helm of an impressive quintet with trumpeter Freddie Hubbard, tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon, bassist Butch Warren, and drummer Billy Higgins. Though rooted firmly in hard bop, the brilliant pianist and composer presented his own strikingly original voice on this auspicious six-song collection consisting entirely of his own compositions from the funky hit "Watermelon Man" to the timeless ballad "Alone and I." Musicians: Herbie Hancock, piano Butch Warren, bass Billy Higgins, drums Dexter Gordon, tenor saxophone Freddie Hubbard, trumpet Features: • Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series • 180g vinyl LP • Curated by Don Was and Cem Kurosman • Theme: Blue Note Debuts (Part 1) • Standard packaging
