Blue World: Music For The Lonely Hours - Various Artists on Limited Edition 10" Vinyl
Archives of America: New Label, Vintage Concepts!
A genre-spanning new heritage label, Archives of America is built on the appeal of impeccably crafted LPs, ones where the scope and pace give the tracks room to speak to each other - and to you - to create a new experience. Archives of America cherry-picks deep cuts from great vintage catalogs and arranges them to resonate around a single mood through every element, from the first glimpse of the cover to the last note.
Every shade of blue is reflected in this retrospective of classic tracks from the Bethlehem catalog, a source of premier musicians playing world-class jazz during the 1950s and early ’60s. Blue World, a collection of blue-themed songs, features one side of impeccably rendered ballad vocals from Mel Tormé, Chris Connor, Betty Blake, and Bobby Troup, with jazz instrumentals from the Pete Brown Sextet and Booker Ervin on the other. The great Cary Ginell provides liner notes. Limited edition 10-inch vinyl pressing.
