Lundvall Not Lundvall

ReCode says Don Was is President of Blue Note.

Bruce Lundvall was President of Blue Note.

(ReCode says we can lift their art if we give credit. Thinks ReCode)

Duly noted.

edit to add: more to the point, Dan Ouellette and Bruce Lundvall have conspired to create a legacy project for Bruce, available here. “Playing by Ear”.

I got to this in a round-about way, in that I noted a little drawing of Don Was and clicked on it, on ReCode.

In an astounding career spanning 48 years, Bruce Lundvall has been responsible for signing a wide array of artists, including Willie Nelson, Herbie Hancock, Dexter Gordon, Stan Getz, Dianne Reeves, Richard Marx, Natalie Cole, Cassandra Wilson, Anita Baker, and Norah Jones.  In the words of Dave Koz, “Without Bruce Lundvall, there would be a huge gap in the history of popular music.”

Author Dan Ouellette will paint the portrait of one of the most notable figures in the record industry through an exciting series of interviews with Bruce himself. The project will feature exclusive interviews with some of the most important artists of the last 40 years.  Selected items from Bruce’s archives will also be available for online viewing, a library so extensive and valuable that the Library Of Congress has requested it become a part of their permanent collection after this project is complete. 

This project will be unique in that it will be a multi-media endeavor that will present the legendary career of Bruce Lundvall through video, audio, and images in addition to the written word.
