The Blue Note Tone Poet Series was born out of Blue Note President Don Was' admiration for the exceptional audiophile Blue Note LP reissues presented by Music Matters. Was brought Joe Harley (from Music Matters), a.k.a. the "Tone Poet," on board to curate and supervise a series of reissues from the Blue Note family of labels.

For Django, recorded for Pacific Jazz in 1964, has long been considered a classic by jazz guitarist Joe Pass. He pays tribute to Django Reinhardt without attempting to emulate him in any way. Rather, he honors him by using his own style with fellow guitarist John Pisano as well as bassist Jim Hughart and drummer Colin Bailey. Highlights include "Rosetta," "Nuages," and "Fleur D' Ennui." Blue Note Tone Poet Series features all-analog, remastered 180-gram vinyl in deluxe gatefold packaging.

I prefer acoustic guitar to electric guitar. But good recording is good recording. Good music with great sound. Recommended.

Stunning. Just beautiful

With the exception of a few Grant Green and Jim Hall titles, jazz guitar isn’t usually my jam. But oh my, this is an elegant, intelligent, and delightful listen. My copy is dead quiet and totally flat. It’s a wonderful album at night, mellow with some up tempo passages. What a truly skilled musician brought to life on a wonderful recording. Buy this album and enjoy the open and elegant sound.
