This year Blue Note celebrates the 70th anniversary of the label. As part of its global celebrations The Blue Note 7 All Star Tribute band will be on tour in the US and around the world. The US tour will end with a week-long run at Birdland in New York April 14-19 and a European tour is planned for October-November. Earlier this year the septet released Mosaic: A Celebration of Blue Note Records, an eight-song collection of re-envisioned Blue Note classics.
Lastly we head to the UK for an update on Glastonbury Festival held at the end of June – Neil Young has just been confirmed as the third headliner joining Blur and Bruce Springsteen. The festival is already sold out - but there’ll be some cancelled tickets up for grabs on April 5th but you have to have registered on the website to be eligible.
