On Friday the 5th of December 1980, three of the finest jazz and flamenco guitar players took to the stage at San Francisco’s Warfield Theatre. The concert, known as Friday Night in San Francisco, became an instant classic that would leave a mark on generations to come. It reached the top of the charts in 1981, its year of release. The day after this feast of acoustics and pyrotechnics, Al Di Meola, John McLaughlin and Paco de Lucia did it all again. The same place, the same set of six strings (including both solo and group pieces). This album contains the audio of this second evening on the 6th of December 1980, which has remained unreleased until now. This gifted trio hardly need to prove themselves, but even so, they manage to escape the confines of the concert to produce their very own sonic world that mixes flamenco, jazz and rock. This Saturday night concert, which features a different repertoire, has the same spontaneity and informal vibe as the Friday night show. The notes seem to crackle and sparkle in the sky, creating an intoxicating rainbow of sensations! © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

The Eternal John Coltrane

17th July 1967 marked the passing of the American saxophonist, at just 40 years old. The recordings he left behind have completely reshaped the history of his instrument, that of jazz and of 20th century music altogether.

Lee Morgan, Breathless

Lee Morgan’s story is full of highs (in his records) and lows (in his personal life). Born in 1938, he was one of the greatest trumpeters on the Blue Note label. He enjoyed a dazzling career where he walked amongst the giants of jazz, although it was tragically cut short in 1972 by his ex-wife’s gun…

Blue Note in 10 Albums

The most famous of all jazz labels had it all! Five-star artists, original repertoires, ingenious associate artistic directors, exceptional sound recording, sublime album covers, a variety of genres (Bebop, Hard Bop, Soul Jazz, Modal Jazz, Free Jazz)… The label was launched in 1939 by Francis Wolff and Alfred Lion, two Germans who had fled the Nazi regime, and had everything going for it. Qobuz has picked 10 key albums from its ample catalogue. Some of them are celebrated classics. Others are underrated marvels. But all of them played a vital role in shaping Blue Note as a label.
