In addition to the main acts that feature the likes of Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner, Joe Lovano, John Scofield, and Chris Botti, Blue Note has introduced the Monday Night Series and the bi-weekly Late Night Groove Series to showcase New York’s up-and-coming jazz, soul, hip-hop, R&B and funk artists. Blue Note has been instrumental in encouraging the development of Greenwich Village’s local musicians by giving them a chance to perform in one of the world’s finest venues.
Since its inception in 1981, Blue Note has become one of the premier jazz clubs in the world and a cultural institution in Greenwich Village. Owner and founder Danny Bensusan had a vision to create a jazz club in Greenwich Village that would treat deserving artists with respect, while allowing patrons to see the world’s finest jazz musicians in a close, comfortable setting. After twenty-vie years of success, Blue Note continues to carry the torch for jazz into the 21st century in Greenwich Village, the cultural heart of New York City.

> Down Beat is an American magazine devoted to “jazz, blues and beyond,” the last word indicating its expansion beyond the jazz realm which it covered exclusively in previous years. The publication was established in 1934 in Chicago, Illinois. It is named after the “downbeat” in music also called “beat one” or the first beat of a musical measure. Well-known features of Down Beat Magazine include its “Reviews” section where jazz critics, using a ’1-Star to 5-Star’ maximum rating system, rate the latest musical recordings, vintage recordings, and books; articles on individual musicians and music forms; and its famous “Blindfold Test” column, in a which a musician listens to records by other artists, tries to guess who they are, and rates them using the 5-star maximum rating system.
> Innsbruck Records secured the Down Beat feature of Al Di Meola in the June 2013 Editors’ Picks with a brilliant review of “All Your Life” by Managing Editor, Bobby Reed and in the September 2013 Issue with a generous review of “All Your Life” by Staff Writer, Ken Micallef.
> In 1983 Michael Fagien, then a medical student at the University of Florida’s Medical School, founded JAZZIZ magazine. Fagien, who was financially assisted by Gatorade inventor Dr. Robert Cade, had long enjoyed listening to and writing about music. He also enjoyed making mix tapes for friends. Fagien brought all those interests to the forefront with JAZZIZ, which became the first magazine to include a CD – essentially a mix tape for a far wider circle of friends—with every issue. That innovation would soon be adopted by a numerous computer, gaming and music magazines.
Throughout the remainder of the ’80s and into the early ’90s, the JAZZIZ team refined the magazine’s design and editorial approach, building relationships with major players both inside and outside the music business. The magazine reached new audiences by sponsoring music festivals and other events and through partnerships with various non-jazz enterprises. As a result, JAZZIZ has grown into the world’s largest-circulation jazz magazine.
