Blue Note Records Launches The Finest in Jazz Series

Compilations of classic recordings by pianist Thelonious Monk, guitarist Grant Green, Hammond B3 organ master Jimmy Smith (pictured) and trumpeter Lee Morgan will lead off a new Blue Note Records series to be called The Finest in Jazz. The first of the brand new collections, which the label says will reach inside “the deepest of Blue Note vaults,” will be available on June 5.

Blue Note has also teamed up with the Ropeadope company to launch an accompanying line of T-shirts featuring reproductions of the much-heralded Blue Note album covers. For further information visit
