  • Blue Note fan? Help us continue the Music Matters Jazz series.

    I have started a petition to extend the Music Matters LP series. Please sign the following petition if you want to see 12 more titles in this glorious series. Thank you!

    Note: you can put in a bogus address if you are uncomfortable with that part of the signing.

      I'm still working my way through them. I really like Whistle Stop so far. I hear Wahoo! is excellent.

        My favorite so far from the last 3 is Dexter Gordon.

          I've been a subscriber since the initial 45 RPM Blue Note releases. Personally I'm torn. I can't imagine Music Matters would just end with the Blue Note series, and not have something else planned. I would like to see what else they could do with jazz releases from other labels. If that is not a possibility then I want more BN releases.

            I have all of the MMJ 45 rpms and some of the 33 rpms. I started getting the 33 rpms but with limited shelf space, saw no reason for getting the 33 rpms too. There are two 33 rpms though that I'm missing and need to order.

            I really want them to issue Kenny Burrell Blue Lights v1 and v2. But Joe doesn't think the tapes sound all that good. The Classic reissue sounded pretty good to me and is one of the rare and pricey Blue Notes. Well if not, am plenty happy with the Classic reissue?

            I guess they could take a page out of Classic Records or MOFI and do either some limited edition Ultradisc releases or single sided 45 rpm reissues. Or use Clarity vinyl but then I think they would have to go to QRP for that. Or TAPE!

                One of my "new" favorite records. Love Gene Harris.

              We are now at 112 signatures. A great start but still a ways to go. Any support you can give is appreciated.

              Joe and I have spoken and he has several titles in mind still to be done. Tape quality is an issue in general but less an issue for these anticipated titles.
