Blue Note: Uncompromising Expression

BN Uncomprimising 2BN Uncomprimising SpreadJust like vinyl records, we love and collect books here at Flea Market Funk. We are always looking for some interesting books to get with while we are listening to the black crack. We came across a book that we wanted to share, because we think this is something that not only are we going to add to the FMF library, but that you should too. Blue Note: Uncompromising Expression celebrates 75 years of the record label and not just the music it put out, but the design that changed the way we look at album covers and album cover design. We’ve always been fascinated by the photography of Francis Wolff and the aesthetic of the label, and this book is the first illustrated story of the Blue Note from 1939 to present day. It is a must have for all jazz and music lovers, and a welcome edition to any library. Published by Chronicle Books, it takes almost 400 pages to tell the story of this great music machine. Check the video below and see for yourself. Cool baby.

Keep Diggin’!
