Blue Note Records' 65-year legacy of cutting-edge industry quality and invaluable contribution to music culture is the basis of "Blue Note Revisited." Global DJs and producers from Europe, the Caribbean, America, and Asia offer unique remixes of classic Blue Note tracks. Jazzanova, Matthew Herbert, and DJ Spinna reinterpret Wayne Shorter and Donald Byrd, using various styles from hip-hop to house and break-beats to acid jazz. Kenny “Dope” Gonzales' version of "La Malanga" shines, but the diversity of approaches makes the entire project a matter of personal preference.
