Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series!
180g Vinyl LP!

Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series! In honor of Blue Note Records' 80th Anniversary, the legendary Jazz label has launched the Blue Note 80 Vinyl Reissue Series. Distinct from the Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series, this 2nd series curated by Don Was and Cem Kurosman features mid-priced 180g vinyl releases in standard packaging with albums spanning the many eras of the label's history presented by themes: Blue Note Debuts, Blue Grooves, Great Reid Miles Covers, Blue Note Live, and Blue Note Drummer Leaders.

By the time drummer Pete La Roca recorded his debut album Basra in 1965 he had already appeared on nine Blue Note sessions as a sideman and spent time in bands led by Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane. But it was another tenor titan, Joe Henderson, that La Roca brought in as the sole horn voice to front a dynamic quartet that was completed by what liner note writer Ira Gitler called "one of the most attuned rhythm sections in jazz" featuring bassist Steve Swallow and pianist Steve Kuhn. The resulting album is one of the great underrated gems of the Blue Note catalog featuring an expansive 6-track set that includes 3 compositions by La Roca ("Basra", "Candu", "Tears Come from Heaven"), Swallow's tune "Eiderdown", "Malagueña" by Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona, and a stunning ballad performance of the standard "Lazy Afternoon".
