About Music Matters...
|For nearly 70 years, the name Blue Note has been synonymous with the finest in recorded jazz music. The combination of producer Alfred Lion, photographer Francis Wolff, (his partner in Blue Note), and recording engineer Rudy Van Gelder resulted in a near perfect team for documenting the greatest jazz musicians of the time. Music Matters has dedicated itself to re-releasing select Blue Note titles in pristine 180g, 45RPM pressings for immense improvements in sound. The added weight of the vinyl itself, as well as a 35% increase in groove velocity means, simply, more music. Bringing these records back to life again in this new form is like meeting an old friend in new clothes. The work is being carried out with respect, dedication to quality and the realization that being a part of the long Blue Note heritage is both a great honor and a daunting responsibility.|
