A SPLASH AS
BLUE NOTE GM

Blue Note Records VP Justin Seltzer has been promoted to the newly created position of General Manager of the label. He reports to Blue Note President Don Was.

Seltzer is charged with managing the day-to-day operations of Blue Note, under the auspices of Was, executing the label’s business strategy and playing an instrumental role in artist signings, creating and executing marketing campaigns, and directing commercial aspects of Blue Note releases in the U.S. and around the world. He is based in the Tower.

“Justin is a passionate advocate for jazz and is innovative in his approach to expanding the jazz audience in our ever-evolving industry,” Was said. “He has done a tremendous job over the past six years, and this is a well-deserved promotion.” 

Seltzer joined Capitol Music Group’s Blue Note in 2014 as a Director to work in A&R, marketing and general label operations and played an integral role in campaigns for Wayne Shorter, Robert Glasper, and others, the development and launch of limited-edition subscription box set Blue Note Review, and Blue Note’s 80th Anniversary Campaign that began in 2019.
