World exclusive first play – Blue Note’s All-Star Band

The famous jazz label is celebrating 75 years with new music from it’s biggest names

The Blue Note All-Stars are set to deliver their first showpiece – this is a super group formed to celebrate the label’s 75th anniversary, featuring Robert Glasper, Ambrose Akinmusire, Marcus Strickland, Lionel Loueke, Derrick Hodge, Kendrick Scott and special appearances from Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock.

Blue Note says these visionaries will present the album ‘Our Point of View’, an 11-track musical expedition featuring original pieces by each of the band members as well as two renderings of Wayne Shorter compositions, including an expansive 18-minute version of “Witch Hunt,”. 

The project is set to be released on October 6th, but Chris Philips had a world exclusive first listen on his Jazz FM Blueprint Programme on Saturday. Catchup via Mixcloud now...
