Told through six iconic albums, curated by Blue Note & VMP.
Most 80-year-old cultural institutions in America survive by becoming a little grandiose. I think it is fascinating that Blue Note has basically avoided grandiosity and won.”
A great series unfolds in episodes, and the best stories are told in chapters. We’re reinventing the box set experience as Don Was (the president of Blue Note Records) takes us all on a sequential journey through each album in the box. Here’s how it will work:
We created VMP Anthology for people who recognize that every album has a deep story to tell. By revealing the records slowly and shipping in installments, we give you space to truly listen and absorb each individual masterpiece, and the opportunity to share your thoughts with others.
All six albums in VMP Anthology were remastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearant Audio, and pressed at RTI on high quality 180g black vinyl. For the first five albums, Blue Note pulled the master tapes for the albums out of their vaults for an all analog remaster and pressing. For the modern jazz album, we remastered from highest quality digital source.
