One of the music industry's most significant and iconic artists and executives—Don Was—is coming to Australia for the first time this June to help celebrate the 80th anniversary of the legendary jazz label Blue Note Records.

At this very special,one-off event Don will be interviewed live on stage by Eastside FM presenter and jazz aficionado Paris Pompour about his career and the involvement with Blue Note label. Don will be sharing videos and unreleased recordings from Blue Note Records artists. Blue Note Records merchandise and albums will be available for sale at the venue. Don Was will be signing products after the interview.

As the President of Blue Note Records since 2011, Don Was is both the company’s leader and an ambassador for its music, charged with bringing the label’s 21st century jazz artists and its expanding palette of contemporary musicians to larger audiences. Was is also caretaker for Blue Note’s singular and historic catalogue of music, and is burnishing the label’s 80-year legacy by overseeing ongoing and extensive reissue campaigns that serve audiences in both the analogue and digital realms.
