The third recording by the Towson State University Jazz Ensemble (which, for those who find such information useful, is in Maryland) arrived in mid–winter unclothed; that is to say, no booklet, no tray card, no liner notes, only the CD itself in a jewel box. What this means is that no personnel are listed, nor is there any information about the individual tracks such as composer, arranger, soloists or playing times. Fortunately, the music is (almost) intact (there is one sonic shock, but more about that in a moment).
The record label that was founded in the wake of that session is still going strong. Blue Note Records Turns 80 Years Old Today - JazzTimes. Blue Note, the world-famous jazz record label, turns 80 today and, to draw attention to its legacy, will keep the celebration going all year.
