Blue Note Records was founded in 1939, and has earned their reputation as the finest label in jazz music. The label is known for classic bebop, hard hop, modal jazz, and beyond, with releases by legendary artists like Art Blakey, Bud Powell, Dexter Gordon, Donald Byrd, Grant Green, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Sonny Clark, Wayne Shorter and many more.

And now, Groovebug is proud to release a new iPad app representing the music and culture of the Blue Note label; the Blue Note App.

Jeremiah Seraphine, CEO and co-founder of Groovebug, said, “We are delighted that EMI took the lead in pioneering a forward thinking partnership approach for working with technology companies. The new approach offers incentives for developers to build consumer centric products with business models rather than churning out more cookie-cutter marketing products that don’t offer value to the consumer. Ultimately the music fan benefits when forward thinking technologies like the Groovebug Platform are applied to amazing catalogs of music like the Blue Note jazz collection.“
Neil Tinegate, VP Digital Projects at EMI Music, said, “Groovebug have done an amazing job with the Blue Note app, creating a fantastic experience that really brings this incredible content to life. The partnership approach of the OpenEMI process has meant that whilst EMI has taken care of tasks such as licensing and clearances, and now distribution and marketing, Groovebug have been able to concentrate on what they do best – designing and building a stunning app.”
