jcam_44 Posted April 16, 2016 Report Share Posted April 16, 2016 Has anyone else been disappointed by new Blue Note releases? This for me goes back a ways but I started thinking about it again while listening to the new Marcus Strickland album I got today. I think I'm only missing one of Marcus' releases and this was the least satisfying on first listen. Which was also the case with Takuya Kuroda's Blue Note debut after 3 extremely solid indie releases. To a lesser extent, the Jason Moran "All Rise" which I absolutely enjoy, and feel that Jason captured Fats with a unique and beautiful tribute that was still decidedly Moran, I was still left wondering if part of this release had "label direction". On a side note, I think what they've done for Gregory Porter and other vocalists, outstanding. Anyone else have similar feeling? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
