Music:

All music in this episode by Meade ”Lux” Lewis from their single Melancholy / Solitude, released on Blue Note Records in 1939.

  • “Melancholy”
  • “Solitude”

Notes:

Have you ever guessed why they call it the Blues? The famed Blue Note Records label might have something to do with that.

The label’s beginning has roots in one of the most famous concerts of all time and owes a debt to whiskey as well.
