In honor of Blue Note Records’ 75th anniversary, Moleskine has released a limited edition collection of notebooks to celebrate the iconic label that spearheaded freestyle jazz of the ‘50s and ‘60s. The collection includes a series of five designs that reflect the artwork seen on classic Blue Note album covers and posters, including jazz legends Dexter Gordon, Art Blakey, Thelonious Monk, Freddie Hubbard and Kenny Burrell. The notebooks also boast photographs on the inside cover, music reviews and a detailed history of the record label.
As part of the launch, Moleskine debuted a short film by French director Bastien Dubois, capturing the spirit championed by Blue Note, scored with original jazz music by Jean Baptiste Berger, Philippe Billoin, Marcel Ebbers, and Mathias Neiss.
Moleskine’s Dexter Gordon notebook is available to buy from the notebook maker’s online store and Moleskine stores worldwide, retailing at $35. The other four designs will be available for purchase on September 3.
