    Description

    Blue Note — along with Universal Music Enterprises — is launching a major 75th Anniversary Vinyl Initiative dedicated to the proposition that its catalog should be readily available at a low cost — featuring high quality pressings and authentic reproductions of Blue Note's iconic packaging.

    On Empyrean Isles, Herbie Hancock returns to hard bop, but the results are anything but conventional. Working with cornetist Freddie Hubbard, bassist Ron Carter, and drummer Tony Williams — a trio just as young and adventurous as he was — Hancock pushes at the borders of hard bop, finding a brilliantly evocative balance between traditional bop, soul-injected grooves, and experimental, post-modal jazz.
