Blue Note: Uncompromising Expression | Richard Havers
A welcome return to Havers classic 'Blue Note' title, beautifully republished by Thames & Hudson in this sumptuous paperback format.
Viewed as the official book on the iconically cool jazz label, 'Blue Note: Uncompromising Expression' is an essential visual resource for music lovers and graphic design lovers alike.
The book traces the evolution of jazz from boogie-woogie and swing, through bebop, funk and fusion, to the eclectic and varied Blue note output of today. Here is a rich 80-year history, that not only brings together some of the best photography and design that has ever been produced in the field (the book features the very best photographs, covers and ephemera from the archives, including never-before-published material), but also brings life the extraordinary music that the has come to define the label and which forever changed the global musical landscape.
