The young British jazz scene is on the rise, and Don Was, the president of the legendary Blue Note label, has clearly noticed this. He’s dived into his rich catalogue in search of material for covers intended to pay tribute to the jazz tradition whilst shaking things up with some contemporary rhythms and energy. After the international success of the first compilation featuring musicians such as Shabaka Hutchings, Jordan Rakei and Jorja Smith, the second volume of the Blue Note Re:imagined series is now here (with a brand-new cast, of course). If you can get on board with the overarching concept that sees everything unite under the standard song format, with vocals on the majority of tracks (most of which are predominantly female), the record is a joy to listen to and even contains some veritable successes.


With original tracks borrowed from Donald Byrd, Wayne Shorter and Chick Corea, as well as Norah Jones, Neil Young, Grant Green and Chico Hamilton, this is a very coherent and ultimately very ‘uniform’ album (underneath the surface-level differences) presented by this collection of musicians who represent the richness and diversity of the British jazz (from the singer Ego Ella May to the London duo Venna & Marco and Conor Albert from Ninja Tune). Depending on your taste, you might enjoy the seductive lo-fi vocals or the arrangers' skilful mixing of styles (the beautiful orchestral version of Donald Byrd's 'Miss Kane' by Swindle is particularly striking). However, there are a selection of covers that recreate the original material with such talent and imagination that they almost single handedly give the album its sense of depth and dimension: trumpeter Yazz Ahmed (Chick Corea's ‘It’), tuba player Theon Cross (Thelonious Monk's ‘Epistrophy’) and Nubiyan Twist (Donald Byrd's ‘Through the Noise (Chant 2)’). © Stéphane Ollivier/Qobuz

Album Description

The young British jazz scene is on the rise, and Don Was, the president of the legendary Blue Note label, has clearly noticed this. He’s dived into his rich catalogue in search of material for covers intended to pay tribute to the jazz tradition whilst shaking things up with some contemporary rhythms and energy. After the international success of the first compilation featuring musicians such as Shabaka Hutchings, Jordan Rakei and Jorja Smith, the second volume of the Blue Note Re:imagined series is now here (with a brand-new cast, of course). If you can get on board with the overarching concept that sees everything unite under the standard song format, with vocals on the majority of tracks (most of which are predominantly female), the record is a joy to listen to and even contains some veritable successes.


With original tracks borrowed from Donald Byrd, Wayne Shorter and Chick Corea, as well as Norah Jones, Neil Young, Grant Green and Chico Hamilton, this is a very coherent and ultimately very ‘uniform’ album (underneath the surface-level differences) presented by this collection of musicians who represent the richness and diversity of the British jazz (from the singer Ego Ella May to the London duo Venna & Marco and Conor Albert from Ninja Tune). Depending on your taste, you might enjoy the seductive lo-fi vocals or the arrangers' skilful mixing of styles (the beautiful orchestral version of Donald Byrd's 'Miss Kane' by Swindle is particularly striking). However, there are a selection of covers that recreate the original material with such talent and imagination that they almost single handedly give the album its sense of depth and dimension: trumpeter Yazz Ahmed (Chick Corea's ‘It’), tuba player Theon Cross (Thelonious Monk's ‘Epistrophy’) and Nubiyan Twist (Donald Byrd's ‘Through the Noise (Chant 2)’). © Stéphane Ollivier/Qobuz

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.

Bossa nova, the Eternal Wave

Since its creation in the late 1950s, Bossa-nova has become an indispensable part of Brazilian music. The style’s strong evocative power won over artists from all around the world and earned recognition for many first-rate musicians whose works are now seen as classics.

MPS, Jazz from the Black Forest

Jazz label MPS celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2018. On this occasion we interviewed Andreas Brunner-Schwer, son of founder Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer, about his encounters, the label's first recordings and its uniqueness.
