A little more info via Facebook...

”For the Blue Note 80 series we use an analog source whenever one is available (i.e. Herbie Hancock "Takin' Off" & Dexter Gordon "Doin' Allright" in the 1st batch). Some more recent titles like Robert Glasper "Canvas" have a digital master. Kevin Gray is mastering, and vinyl is being pressed at Optimal in Germany. Hope this answers your questions. Have a great day.”

 "Distinct from the Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series, this 2nd series curated by Don Was and Cem Kurosman features mid-priced 180g vinyl releases in standard packaging" 

In the works: a 3rd series featuring budget-priced 140g crap vinyl releases in inferior packaging.

It's a comforting thought that each market segment will be catered to.
