BLUE NOTE JOINS VINYL CLUB
4/9/19

Vinyl Me, Please  has partnered with Capitol’s Blue Note to celebrate the storied jazz label’s 80th anniversary with a box set with a six-week release schedule that includes an online operation.

VMP Anthology: The Story of Blue Note Records is a seven-LP box set that begins with the release of Horace Silver’s Horace Silver Trio and Dexter Gordon’s Dexter Calling.

To accompany each shipment, Vinyl Me, Please will release a four-part podcast and content series featuring Blue Note President Don Was and Vinyl Me, Please’s Editorial Director Andrew Winistorfer who will talk through each album’s story and its imprint on jazz.

“Every one of the Blue Note VMP Anthology records shows artists in transition, moving to something different than what they did the album before and, in retrospect, you can see where it aims into where they were going next,” Was said. “But they are all beautiful snapshots of a significant moment of pushing the envelope and that’s what ties them all together.”

Only 1,000 copies will be available for purchase. Sales start today.

 “Great labels and artists can’t be summed up in a single album or quick spin,” said Cameron Schaefer, Head of Music & Brand, Vinyl Me, Please. “They require slow listening across a lifetime of work, in-depth storytelling, and space to think and discuss.”
