Blue Note ... The most prestigious jazz label of the 20th century. A story of passion and friendship. The passion of a little 7 year-old-boy, Alfred Lion, who, fascinated, would hide all night behind a swing band, to be at the heart of the percussion and who, on reaching 18, left Berlin and his family for "the source of jazz" : New York. The passion of a young photographer, Francis Wolff, smitten by this "strange music" on attending his very first concert. From the meeting of these two passionate artists came a lifelong friendship which revolved around jazz. Their story gave birth to Blue Note Records, founded in 1939, whose statement of intent read that Blue Note was "designed simply to serve the uncompromising expression of hot jazz and swing, in general." The two friends only recorded what they loved and they would "put quality above cost accounting." Overcoming crises and changing musical trends, they recorded the greatest musicians in jazz history, like Sidney Bechet, Mead "Lux" Lewis, Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Wayne Shorter. All the photographs in this book were taken by Francis Wolff

Hipness is simultaneously a philosophy and the external styles and behaviors that express that philosophy. The specific markers of hipness that were available to Lion and Wolff were popularized by several hip subcultures active in the fifties and sixties, including jazz musicians, black and white hipsters, and the beats. While the hip styles of these subcultures varied, they all shared a hip worldview that emphasized individuality, nonconformity, spontaneity, authenticity, and direct, unmediated self-expression. The markers of modernity incorporated into Blue Note's image were visual, textual, and musical. They included cover art that features a Bauhaus-influenced minimalist approach to graphic design, liner notes that stress the modernist aesthetic duality of an artwork taking its place within a historical tradition while expressing the spirit of its own time, and musical styles that integrate the modern musical elements of bebop in the 1940s and modal and free jazz in the 1950s and1960s, as well as the Afro-Modern elements of blues, gospel, and other African American roots musics. Different combinations of these musics resulted in the styles of hard bop, soul jazz, free bop, and the New Thing that Blue Note recorded between 1954 and 1967. All four styles participate in the hip and modern image of Blue Note Records in slightly different but related ways
