         Blue Note blue-white label

Blue Note 4000 series

Masterpieces of Reid Miles

In 1958 Blue Note changed the numbering on their albums from 1500 to 4000, beginning with 4001 which was Sonny Rollins´ Newk´s Time. The series run into the 1970s with more than 400 albums.

Reid Miles continued to create most of the albums and the series includes many of his masterpieces. He stayed at the label into 1967.

Alfred Lion quits Blue Note the same year due to health problems. Francis Wolff died in 1971, and the rest of the old Blue Note finally died with him.

In 1965 Blue Note had been sold to Liberty, but without any changes in the music or graphic policy. But from 1967 some changes become obvious.

The hard bop, which Blue Note had documented in so many years, was in recession. The young audiences found little in jazz to interest them. Jazz wasn´t funky no longer.

Blue Note fought a losing battle aginst these signs of the time. In 1971 the label moved towards fusion, but most of all seemed to floundered around in search of a direction. The classic blue-white label was changed to a black-blue and then solid blue and the old "The Finest in Jazz Since 1939"-logo was mothballed.

By 1979 Blue Note was finished as active label, however to be back again in 1985 by Bruce Lundvall and Michael Cuscuna.
