New collection of classic Blue Note tracks!
Announcing Blue Note Re:imagined, a brand new collection of classic Blue Note tracks, reworked and newly recorded by a selection of the U.K. scene's most exciting young talents today. Representing a bridge between the past and future, the project will feature contributions from a rollcall of internationally acclaimed jazz, soul and R&B acts — Shabaka Hutchings, Ezra Collective, Nubya Garcia, Mr Jukes, Steam Down, Skinny Pelembe, Emma-Jean Thackray, Poppy Ajudha, Jordan Rakei, Fieh, Ishmael Ensemble, Blue Lab Beats, Melt Yourself Down, Yazmin Lacey, Alfa Mist, and Brit Award-winning Jorja Smith, whose version of St Germain's "Rose Rouge" is released today. The full Blue Note Re:imagined album will be released on September 25, 2020.
The track above, which originally appeared on St Germain's 2000 Blue Note album Tourist, was itself based on a sample of Marlena Shaw's "Woman of the Ghetto" from her 1973 album Cookin' With Blue Note At Montreux. Smith's stunning new version takes its cues from classic soul, jazz and reggae and perfectly captures the enduring Blue Note aesthetic.
