Since its early beginnings, hip hop has incorporated the distinct sound of Blue Note through sampling and remixes. Madlib elevated this tradition with his groundbreaking 2003 album, Shades of Blue. In this visionary masterpiece, the DJ/producer/rapper/musician delved into Blue Note's archives, offering remixes and reimaginings of timeless classics by iconic artists such as Donald Byrd, Bobbi Humphrey, Ronnie Foster, Bobby Hutcherson, Wayne Shorter, and more.

The Blue Note Classic Vinyl Series provides an exceptional listening experience, employing all-analog mastering techniques from the original master tapes and pressing the music on high-quality 180-gram vinyl.
