Product Notes

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of Blue Note, the label is releasing a comprehensive 5CD singles box entitled Uncompromising Expression. Releasing day-and-date with this collection is a new hardcover book - with the same name - written by jazz-authority, Richard Havers, who details Blue Note's impact on popular culture. Havers, who also wrote the 2013 Verve: The Sound of America, not only wrote this defining Blue Note history, but he organized the track list for this singles box as a musical companion to the rich text and adored images. Opening with the label's very first signing - the pianist Meade Lux Lewis - and closing seventy five years later with the beautifully progressive sounds of Derrick Hodge, Uncompromising Expression is a complete overview of the one of the most inspired and eclectic catalogs of Jazz. This collection features Jazz greats from Thelonious Monk to Art Blakey to John Coltrane to Donald Byrd, Cassandra Wilson, Norah Jones and more. Packaged in a beautiful slipcase, Uncompromising Expression also includes a 48-page booklet featuring a complete discography of the 75 titles included in this box. Each of the five discs covers a specific era, from boogie to hard bop, soul jazz to the roots revival of the 90's, and the 21st century trailblazers like Robert Glasper and Gregory Porter.
