About this title


Black-and-white photographs oozing with cool immortalize the performances and offstage lives of more than 100 famed jazz musicians who forged Blue Note Records’ legendary reputation. Blue Note Records—cofounded in 1939 by Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff—is dedicated to recording the greatest musicians in jazz history. Wolff’s photographs taken from 1948–69 catch the stars in action: performing onstage, in recording sessions, or cutting stylish silhouettes around town. This curated selection includes jazz greats Louis Armstrong, Art Blakey, Ornette Coleman, Chick Corea, John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk, Dexter Gordon, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, and many more. Each photograph is identified by subject, session or album being cut, and date; and the featured artists are indexed for easy reference. The intimate and candid photographs—often used to illustrate the label’s iconic album covers—recount the label’s dazzling seventy-five-year saga.
