Blue Note Turns 70
We are greatly looking forward to wrapping up our 2008-09 concert series by celebrating the 70th Anniversary of Blue Note Records with an all-star lineup of musicians.
On Wednesday, March 25 at the Orpheum Theater, Bill Charlap on piano (musical director), Ravi Coltrane on tenor saxophone, Peter Bernstein playing guitar, Lewis Nash on drums, Nicholas Payton on trumpet, Peter Washington playing bass and Steve Wilson on alto saxophone will explore a sample of some of the most notable tunes from the Blue Note Records catalog.
NPR's Talk of the Nation will spend time today discussing the history of the record label. More information available here along with a playlist of Bill Charlap's Blue Note Picks.
Tickets to the March 25 concert are on sale now!
