The creative young voices of jazz have long been the lifeblood of Blue Note Records from Thelonious Monk and Herbie Hancock to Freddie Hubbard and Joe Henderson, all of whom made their debut albums for the legendary label.
Blue Note All-Stars continue that legacy with Our Point of View, the debut recording of a supergroup of young visionaries formed in 2014 for Blue Note’s 75th Anniversary. The album also features a special guest appearance by Blue Note legends Wayne Shorter and Herbie Hancock, and is dedicated to the memory of beloved longtime Blue Note President Bruce Lundvall.
Blue Note All-Stars are:
Ambrose Akinmusire: trumpet
Marcus Strickland: tenor saxophone
Lionel Loueke: guitar
Robert Glasper: piano
Derrick Hodge: bass
Kendrick Scott: drums
