Quotes

"Music lessons can be tedious, and musical instruments and instructions cost a lot of money," said Jason Cook, president of KnowNote. "But now, if you can type, you can play music. As you play, your brain actually learns which notes are higher and lower without ever studying sheet music."
"The Astell & Kern line of portable high-resolution audio players were designed to showcase the range of instruments in these musical genres. Now, everyone can listen to these new and classic albums the way they were meant to be heard, how the artist and engineer intended them to be heard."
"In some ways it's phenomenal," Perlman continues. "You look at some of these Blue Note records, and it could be an artist of the same era on a different label, but if it's on Blue Note it has a cachet. There's a level of interest in the Blue Notes that goes beyond just the music. For whatever reason, the Japanese collectors, who have been the drivers of the jazz-collectible market for as long as I can remember, really have an affinity and fascination for the Blue Notes. It had always been, if the record's in great condition and it's an original pressing, there's almost no limit [to what collectors will pay]. But now what we're seeing is, any original pressing, in almost any condition, if it's the right year or the right artist, they're attracting prices that I never thought records in that condition could get$500 for a record that you might not even want to put on your turntable."
...Blue Note/UMe will release a new label-spanning 5-CD, 75-track Blue Note singles box set as a companion piece to a new hardcover book, both titled "Blue Note: Uncompromising Expression."
