Various blue note records presents somethin' new jazz sampler 2007


Lion first heard jazz as a young boy in Berlin . He settled in New York City in 1937, and shortly after the first From Spirituals to Swing concert, recorded pianists Albert Ammons and Meade Lux Lewis in 1939 during a one-day session in a rented studio. The Blue Note label initially consisted of Lion and Max Margulis , a communist writer who funded the project. The label's first releases were traditional "hot" jazz and boogie woogie , and the label's first hit was a performance of " Summertime " by soprano saxophonist Sidney Bechet , which Bechet had been unable to record for the established companies. Musicians were supplied with alcoholic refreshments, and recorded in the early hours of the morning after their evening's work in clubs and bars had finished. The label soon became known for treating musicians uncommonly well—setting up recording sessions at congenial times, and allowing the artists to be involved in all aspects of the record's production.
