Blue Note has become one of the first jazz clubs in the world in 1981. Danny Bensusan, owner and founder, had an intention to create a jazz club in Greenwich Village that would treat worth artists with respect, and allowing patrons to enjoy the world's finest jazz musicians in a close, convenient setting. Those artists who had stopped playing in jazz clubs years and years before, such as Lionel Hampton, Sarah Vaughn, Stanley Turrentine, Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Brown, Oscar Peterson and Tito Puente, soon called Blue Note home. Jazz is the art of expressing set to music! It is said to be the fundamental rhythm of human life and man's contemporary reassessment of his usual values. There have been written volumes on the origins of jazz based on black American life-styles. The early affects of tribal drums and the development of gospel, blues and field hollers seem to show out that jazz has to do with human survival and the expression of life.

Jazz is undoubtedly belongs to America's music, and while Blue Note intents to preserve the history of jazz, the club is a place where advance and innovation - the foundations of jazz - are encouraged and performed on a nightly basis. In addition to the main acts that favour the likes of Chick Corea, McCoy Tyner, Joe Lovano, John Scofield, and Chris Botti, Blue Note introduced the Monday Night Series and the bi-weekly Late Night Groove Series to showcase New York's energetic jazz, hip-hop, soul, funk artists and R&B. Blue Note has been effective in encouraging the development of Greenwich Village's local musicians by providing them with a chance to perform in one of the world's finest venues.

After twenty-five years success, Blue Note continues to carry the light for jazz into the 21st century in the cultural centre of New York, Greenwich Village.
