Blue Note by Groovebug

By EMI Records Limited

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.


Experience the sights and sounds of the legendary Blue Note Records, through high quality streaming audio, iconic album covers, original session photos, live performance videos, articles from around the web, historic newspapers, and hand-crafted playlists. The app is perfect for both music lovers who want to learn more about the genre, and discerning jazz aficionados who want to dig deeper.

Download the app for free to explore a wealth of content and 30 second audio clips, and use an in-app purchase to activate your subscription, giving access to a deep catalog of full length songs by the greatest jazz musicians who ever lived, such as Wayne Shorter, Dexter Gordon, and Art Blakey. There is already over a hundred hours of music for subscribers to enjoy... you’ll see in the app that there is more to come and we are currently working with rights holders to bring you even more artists and tracks.

Each month Blue Note will highlight an album, artist, article, or a featured playlist compiled by musicians, journalists, and other jazz experts.

Apple TV owners will delight in the use of AirPlay mirroring and the slideshow feature. Continue to navigate through the app as an animated slideshow displays original session photos of the artist currently playing through your Apple TV.

Features include:
• Access over a thousand songs right now
• New music added monthly
• Customizable playlists
• Dedicate songs to Facebook friends
• Join song discussions
• Detailed liner notes and album info
• Photo galleries and slideshow
• Historic newspaper articles

Blue Note magnificance

All app deveopers out there, this is an app!
The standard by which all others should be judged.
Thank you guys i once owned a decent Blue Note LP collection and got rid of it when vinyl died-what a fool i was. Now i have access to the best music catalogue on the web.

Top notch

This was my first music app. Tried many others but this is so hard to beat. It's all I need.
Top class. All very good music, I wished we had a classical one from one of the big music companies.

Crashes constantly

I own a brand new iphone and iPad air and this app refuses to open most if the time. I contacted the developers and never heard back.
