Mosaic Releases Blue Note 75th Anniversary Portfolio

Features seven photos by label co-founder Francis Wolff

Mosaic Images, which maintains the complete catalog of photographer and Blue Note Records co-founder Francis Wolff, has assembled the Blue Note 75th Anniversary Portfolio, described in a press release as “a commemorative portfolio of seven of Wolff’s most outstanding photographs of artists from the label’s classic era.” The artists depicted are Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Jimmy Smith, Thelonious Monk, Horace Silver and John Coltrane.

This limited edition portfolio (only available through December 31) comes in a handmade folio with a folded-over flap secured with a magnetic closure. They are constructed of archival binder board (.098), bound in smooth, black, linen-textured fabric. The lining is of acid-free paper in bright white. Each folio contains a vellum sheet commemorating Blue Note Records’ 75th Anniversary with information about all seven photographs. These 11″ x 17″ fine art prints with an image size of 10″ x 10″ are made with archival pigment inks on 100% acid-free Hahnemuhle watercolor paper with a matte finish. The cost is $1500.00.
