“Lasting Influence” of The Blue Notes Evident in Upcoming Reissues

That is, according to the new full length review of the four Blue Notes CDs by Jon Turney for London Jazz News:

“If you’ve lived with the UK-made sessions, in one form or another, for decades, as I have, it is immeasurably satisfying to see them once again on CD. If you sense the lasting influence of this group on the music being made now and want to dig deeper, they are the best possible place to start. If you want to hear some of the most vibrant music made in this country in the last 50 years, then dig in.”

Reissues of Blue Notes In Concert and Legacy – Live In South Afrika 1964 are available on CD now, with Blue Notes for Mongezi and Blue Notes for Johnny to follow on June 10th.
