Blue Note All-Stars
Our Point Of View
The Blue Note All-Stars were formed to commemorate 75 years of the label. The sextet includes Robert Glasper, Ambrose Akinmusire on trumpet and Marcus Strickland on tenor. The music, whilst contemporary draws a heavy influence from 60’s post Bop Jazz. Indeed, the influence of Miles’ second great quintet from which Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock guest on Shorter’s ‘Masquelero’. The eleven long tracks explore the different dimensions of Jazz. This is heavy in places yet rewarding.
