'Richard Havers's book about Blue Note records, with its details of the inspirations and excesses of the label's major talents, amounts to a history of jazz itself' - Guardian

As it concludes its 75th anniversary year, Blue Note finally gets the book it deserves' - Jazzwise
'Packed with unseen photography and ephemera from the Blue Note archive, including the original studio sessions from some of the most important recordings' - Independent
