Author Richard Havers has a new book out about the history of Blue Note Records. He recently caught up with Gerry Koster for an episode of My Favourite Things, to talk about his favourite tracks and Blue Note's 75th Anniversary.
Blue Note, like many of the classic jazz labels, has played an important role in the documentation of jazz. The book covers the history of the label and the countless classic albums and artists that appeared on it throughout the years. It also pays tribute to key figures like Alfred Lion, Francis Wolff, Rudy Van Gelder, Reid Miles and many others who were responsible in the production of great music.
