Blue Note Records, the world’s most respected and longest-running Jazz label, is being commemorated for its 75th Anniversary throughout 2014 and
beyond with a broad range of special releases and events. Blue Note is pleased to announce a new Blue Note Select collection for Miles Davis entitled
Take Off: The Complete Blue Note Albums. This estate-approved collection of Davis' three Blue Note 10-inch albums, plus all alternate takes issued on
subsequent 12-inch albums and CD reissues features a total of 26 tracks recorded for Blue Note Records on three dates in 1952, ’53 and ’54. This is the
first time Davis’ 10-inch albums – Young Man With A Horn, Miles Davis Vol. 2 and Vol. 3 – have been issued in their original sequence since the early
1950s. The book-style packaging includes a 32-page booklet with an essay by respected jazz writer Kirk Silsbee.
