Bring It Home To Me
Blue Note 84228 (B0033673-01) - Tone Poet Series
Trumpeter Blue Mitchell had been a sideman on Blue Note sessions led by Lou Donaldson, Jimmy Smith, Jackie McLean, and appeared on numerous classics as a member of the Horace Silver Quintet before he began recording his own leader albums for the label. Following The Thing to Do and Down With It, Mitchell headed back into Rudy Van Gelder’s studio in 1966 to record Bring It Home To Me, a soulful hard bop date that featured the trumpeter with Junior Cook on tenor saxophone, Harold Mabern on piano, Gene Taylor on bass, and Billy Higgins on drums. Steeped in the blues and deeply funky, the six-song set found the band performing Mitchell originals (“Blues 3 for 1” and “Blue’s Theme”) as well as a pair of compositions by Jimmy Heath (“Bring It Home To Me” and “Gingerbread Boy”), and a stunning rendition of the ballad “Portrait of Jennie.”
Blue Note Tone Poet Series
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.
Extreme attention to detail has been paid to getting these right in every conceivable way, from the jacket graphics and printing quality to superior LP mastering (direct from the master tapes) by Kevin Gray to superb 180 gm audiophile LP pressings by Record Technology Inc. Every aspect of these Blue Note/Tone Poet releases is done to the highest possible standard. It means that you will never find a superior version. This is IT.
Blue Note Records’ Tone Poet Audiophile Vinyl Reissue Series is produced by Joe Harley and features all-analog, mastered-from-the-original-master-tape 180g audiophile vinyl reissues in deluxe gatefold packaging. Mastering is by Kevin Gray (Cohearent Audio) and vinyl is manufactured at Record Technology Incorporated (RTI).
