Founded in 1939 by Alfred Lion and Max Margulis, Blue Note instantly grew into a force on earth of jazz. A 1939 session with pianists Albert Ammons and Meade Lux Lewis in a very rented studio was the pair's first adventure into recording and jazz vinyl. Conventional "hot" jazz and boogie-woogie were the label's first releases. Blue Note's first hit - the infectious performance of "Summertime" by saxophonist Sidney Bechet, which Bechet was struggling to record to the recognized companies - turned out to be a breakthrough in the early days of jazz vinyl. There would have been a time I had a conversation having a colleague who had just enrolled his 3 years old boy into baby class. So I was asking him why he'd taken a child university during this early age and the man informed me that they wanted his child to socialize and discover how to talk with others. A few weeks later this colleague was complaining to me that he had received a list of books he required to upgrade on his son. He looked disappointed because to him all he wanted would be a social setting for his child nevertheless the teacher were built with a different idea altogether.
