Easy Directions to Blue Note Records (courtesy of NJ's largest independent music store)

Blue Note Records is a jazz label, established in 1939 by Alfred Lion and Francis Wolff. The name originates from the characteristic "blue notes" of jazz and the blues. Blue Note Records is now owned by the EMI Group and in 2006 has been expanded to fill the function of an umbrella label group and specialilzing in the growing market segment of music for adults.
