NEW YORK, July 19 (UPI) — EMI is restructuring its adult pop music, jazz and classics, grouping them as multigenre music for over age 25 under the Blue Note Label Group in New York.

If I though this would provide more money to record good new jazz, I would say this was a good thing, but I am afraid it will just put the real jazz records in a position of having to sell like adult pop to stay alive. That’s not a good thing.

  1. Yep. Looks like all they’re doing is capitalizing on the Blue Note aura for marketing purposes. All hail small labels and a toast to their health and survival.

  2. There is a discussion over at Jazzcorner Speakeasy right now about why Jaz Festivals still use the word jazz, but often program very little of it. For some people jazz is starting to mean music for adults that want to act sophosticated, or “lifestyle music.” I hate that phrase…lifestyle music. Can’t Braxton be part of your lifestyle?
