The History of Blue Note Records from a record collectors perspective,   supplemented with commentary regarding audio quality, a topic on which Wiki editors and music journalists alike appear entirely oblivious.  As an independent collector with no editor or advertisers to please, I can offer opinion a little more freely, and often do.

“ BlueNote Records are designed simply to serve the uncompromising expressions of hot jazz or swing, in general. Any particular style of playing which represents an authentic way of musical feeling is genuine expression. By virtue of its significance in place, time and circumstance, it possesses its own tradition, artistic standards and audience that keeps it alive. Hot jazz, therefore, is expression and communication, a musical and social manifestation, and Blue Note records are concerned with identifying its impulse, not its sensational and commercial adornments.”

Blue Note Records was established in 1939 by a German émigré from Berlin, Alfred Lion, and American musician and writer Max Margulis. Originally dedicated to recording traditional jazz and small group swing on 78rpm shellac, from 1947 the label began to switch its attention to modern jazz.
