The Blue Note review is trip through the sounds of the most iconic Jazz record label in history, Blue Note Records. This performance could also be considered like a “greatest hits of Jazz”, and it’s not often that this very popular material is presented so thoughtfully and by such a stellar ensemble of Minnesota Jazz all stars. A recent performance of this show at the Granada Theatre resulted in a standing ovation and shouts for Encores from the Audience.
