RESONANCE RECORDS AND RECORD STORE DAY

There are three groups of people who make up Record Store Day: those who run the stores, those who shop in the stores and those who make sure there's music in the stores. That last group includes musicians and labels. We don't always hear about what Record Store Day means to labels, so we appreciated this video that Resonance Records sent our way. Resonance is a "young label with an impressive sense of mission", according to the New York Times, and itself proclaims that it's a non-profit jazz label with a mission. Their releases for Record Store Day certainly attest to their standards, their mission, and the quality of their releases. Look for these on vinyl in a record store on Record Store Day 2017:

WES MONTGOMERY & THE WYNTON KELLY TRIO - Smokin In Seattle: Live at The Penthouse (1966)  JACO PASTORIUS - Truth, Liberty & Soul - Live in NYC: The Complete 1982 NPR Jazz Alive! Recording  BILL EVANS - Another Time: The Hilversum Concert

THE HEAD AND THE HEART PREMIERE

The Head and The Heart are celebrating Record Store Day with the release of the STINSON BEACH SESSONS LP, available at record stores starting on 4/22. We're celebrating with the premiere of the song "Bluebird" from that very same RSD release.

"After 6 months away from the road, the 6 of us got together to start working on new music, which became what you now know as ‘Signs of Light’. The first writing session was held at a home studio in Stinson Beach, Ca. 'Bluebird' was an old unfinished song of mine that finally clicked with everyone during our time in California. It's a favorite of ours and we hope you enjoy it as well!” - Jon, The Head and the Heart

LIKE A DRUNK IN A MIDNIGHT CHOIR


MATT COSTA
Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne" recorded at The Grammy Museum in Los Angeles on March 29, 2017 during an event to celebrate the tenth anniversary of Record Store Day and the release on 4/22/17 of Like A Drunk In A Midnight Choir: Record Store Day Celebrates The Music of Leonard Cohen. Matt Costa covers Cohen's "The Partisan" on the record, and his version of "Suzanne" that night was a nice little bonus.

ELTON JOHN 17-11-70

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of Record Store Day, Sir Elton John has been named the first worldwide Record Store Day Legend. His love of physical media and the brick and mortar record stores who sell it is pretty well known, and he's helping us commemorate this tenth Record Store Day by releasing his favorite live album 17-11-70, in an expanded edition for the first time. And he's also waxing poetic about the format he loves and the stores he loves to get it from.
