Hi All,

When I was told about this special edition yesterday I nearly choked on my coffee when I heard the price but now I have had time to look at the package Astell&Kern have put together I actually think that it is a very special package indeed and actually pretty good value for money.

Basically this is a collaboration between Astell&Kern and Blue Note Records to celebrate the record companies 75th Anniversary. There will only be 1000 sets available worldwide with only 10 coming into the UK, the price will be £5000. So now you are thinking the same as me, How Much :-) Where this package really wins other than the Blue AK240, book and nice case is that you also get 75 Blue Note albums in 24 bit on a SD card and individually packed in a special case with the original artwork along with a really nice storage unit to display them in, if you love your Jazz then this really is a very special package.

We are talking about doing an event around this package in the near future so please keep an eye on our website for more details, and if you would like to place an order please feel free to leave a deposit now to make sure that you don’t miss out.

Please find more info and pictures below -

[b]Astell&Kern + Blue Note Records[/b]

Astell&Kern, the leading hi res portable music player that boasts studio sound quality, has announced a special package partnership with Blue Note Records to commemorate the record company’s 75th anniversary in the world of Jazz and Blues.

75 legendary Blue Note jazz albums that have been remastered in the Hi-Res digital format. Especially, five Blue Note albums make their exclusive hi-res audio debuts with this release: Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers’ Mosaic, Tina Brooks’ True Blue, Don Cherry’s Complete Communion, Andrew Hill’s Point Of Departure, and Bobby Hutcherson’s Components.

The gorgeous collection spans Blue Note’s storied history, from Thelonious Monk’s first sessions in 1947 to GRAMMY® Award-winning jazz phenomenon Gregory Porter’s Liquid Spirit. Each album, in high resolution on a microSD card, in an acrylic glass case with original album artwork stacked in a beautiful, decorative tower that can be placed next to your home system for an elegant, luxurious display.

The 75 albums are pre-loaded on the included Astell&Kern AK240 high-resolution audio player, revealing every detail you might not have heard anywhere else, no matter how many times you’ve listened to these albums before.

The lavish collection includes the Blue Note branded Astell&Kern AK240 high-resolution portable audio player, a special hardbound book filled with original album art (front and back cover) for the 75 titles, as well as Richard Havers’ new book, Blue Note: Uncompromising Expression.
