As Blue Note Records continues to celebrate 75 years of The Finest In Jazz throughout 2014, the legendary jazz label is proud to announce an exclusive partnership with Sonos, an innovator in wireless home audio products that let you stream all your favorite music, including some of the greats from the Blue Note archives, to any room in your home in high fidelity sound. Together, we believe in the experience of listening out loud to capture the energy and passion behind some of the most legendary jazz sounds captured over the last 75 years. The partnership – which launches today with a dedicated Blue Note Channel on the Sonos system – will also include a one-of-a-kind Blue Note exhibition at the Sonos Studio in Los Angeles, artist performances, and more exciting news to be announced in the near future.

Sonos listeners can stream 75 years of Blue Note music on the all-new Blue Note Channel powered by TuneIn Radio. The channel features two dedicated Blue Note stations: Blue Note 101 which takes the listener on a tour of the greatest Blue Note tracks spanning 1939 to 2014, and Born In Blue which focuses on the funky gems of the Blue Note catalog that have been sampled by hip hop stars from A Tribe Called Quest to De La Soul to J Dilla to the Beastie Boys. Start listening now by opening your Sonos app and accessing Radio > Blue Note on Sonos.
Blue Note also takes over the Sonos Studio in Los Angeles from September 10 to October 24 for the Born In Blue exhibition, a reimagined record shop that will feature Blue Note artifacts, artist performances, and an interactive installation that allows music fans to immerse themselves fully in the world of Blue Note.
