The Blue Note Tone Poet Series was born out of Blue Note President Don Was' admiration for the exceptional audiophile Blue Note LP reissues presented by Music Matters. Was brought Joe Harley (from Music Matters), a.k.a. the "Tone Poet," on board to curate and supervise a series of reissues from the Blue Note family of labels.
The soulful, elegant pianist Sonny Clark brings his A-game to My Conception, a program of originals recorded in 1959, but not released until 1979. Joining the pianist are a cast of hard bop masters including Hank Mobley, Donald Byrd, Paul Chambers, and Art Blakey. Highlights include "Junka," "Minor Meeting," and Hank Mobley's solo on "Royal Flush." Blue Note Tone Poet Series features all-analog, remastered 180-gram LP in deluxe gatefold packaging. Produced by Joe Harley. Mastered by Kevin Gray.
