Throughout the fifties and sixties, the Blue Note record label embodied one word: style. Blue Note 2, companion volume to Blue Note (also from Chronicle Books), features over 200 more examples of the cutting-edge album covers designed for Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Charles Mingus, and many other jazz greats. From classic images to rare sleeves coveted by collectors, and including a foreword by Ruth Lion, wife of Blue Note founder Alfred Lion, plus essays by Dean Rudland and Graham Marsh, Blue Note 2 is the ultimate entree into the smoky days of Birdland, dark glasses, and E-Type Jags.
