Blue Note Releases Six Jazz Classics In High Definition Audio 

 

Blue Note/EMI is pleased to announce today’s high definition, master-quality audio release of six classics from the label’s legendary catalog on HDtracks (www.HDtracks.com). John Coltrane’s Blue Train, Eric Dolphy’s Out To Lunch, Herbie Hancock’s Maiden Voyage, Wayne Shorter’s Speak No Evil, Horace Silver’s Song for My Father, and Larry Young’s Unity have been digitally remastered for the first time in 96kHz/24bit and 192kHz/24bit from their original analog multi-track masters. All of the albums are accompanied by their original sleeve notes plus additional photos and newly-written package essays.

 

 

Blue Note president Don Was says, “In preparing these hi def remasters, we were very conscientious about maintaining the feel of the original releases while adding a previously unattainable transparency and depth. It now sounds like you’ve set up your chaise lounge right in the middle of Rudy Van Gelder’s studio!”
