Listen to the Blue Note 75th at the Kennedy Center
Jason Moran and I have been planning a Blue Note 75th Anniversary concert to take place at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. for about four years now. It finally happened on Sunday, May 11 and thankfully, NPR was there to podcast it. The audio for the entire concert is up on NPR’s site to listen to.
It was tricky getting the impact and breadth of Blue Note into what was supposed to be a two hour concert, which ran 40 minutes overtime anyway. But we were very happy with the results. Check it out. And before you wonder, Herbie Hancock, Cassandra Wilson and Ravi Coltrane were invited but were otherwise engaged.
