The iconic Blue Note label brings its pop-up store back to London on Friday 11th November to coincide with the launch of the 30th London Jazz Festival. The store will be located at Coal Drops Yard in Kings Cross and will be open for a week. It will offer one of the biggest retail collections of Blue Note vinyl ever assembled in the UK as well as a range of merchandise that includes books, DVDs & CDs.
As an added bonus, on 14th November, the label’s rising star, vibraphonist Joel Ross, will appear at the store in person to sign copies of his latest album ‘The Parable Of The Poet.’ Signed copies of guitarist Bill Frisell’s latest album ‘Four’ and alto saxophonist Immanuel Wilkins’ acclaimed long-player ‘The 7th Hand’ will also be for sale.
The shop will also be previewing selections from Donald Byrd’s forthcoming album ‘Live: Cookin’ with Blue Note at Montreux,’ a previously unissued concert from 1973 that is due for release on 9 December.
Further store events will be announced across the week, including exclusive screenings, album playbacks, talks from Blue Note artists, and discussion panels.
