This show was 2nd in the global jazz chart.
With all celebratory events concerning the 75th anniversary of Blue Note Records – reissues, tribute podcasts and birthday concerts – one would almost forget that another famous jazz label, too, is celebrating a jubilee in 2014. Prestige Records recorded its first session 65 years ago, thereby building the foundations of an impressive and important catalogue, containing landmark jazz albums by such greats as John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Sonny Rollins. Yet, the label never reached the cult status that Blue Note had and still has. Too bad, as its back catalogue holds real treasures for those who look beyond the beaten path.
