Michael Cuscuna's involvement with jazz dates back to his college radio show on Philadelphia's WXPN with a show called Mosaic before going on to remaster historic releases from Atlantic and Blue Note. Cuscuna also founded Mosaic Records, a boutique label devoted to high-end, limited edition reissues that draws on his longtime passion for the "recorded artifact."

BLUE NOTE RECORDS: THEN AND NOW WITH DON WAS

We take a deep dive into the vaults of Blue Note Records, the independent label that helped put artists like Thelonious Monk, Art Blakey and Jimmy Smith on the map. Flagbearer of trad jazz, bebop and the cool school, Blue Note is still at it after 79 years and has expanded its wheelhouse to include vocalists like Norah Jones, Ryan Adams and Van Morrison. We talk with producer extraordinaire and Blue Note president Don Was about the label's past and new directions. And we confab with record maven Michael Cuscuna about digging through Blue Note's back catalog and giving life to unreleased and out-of-print masterpieces. Plus, we hear from Aaron Neville, Jason Moran and Lonnie Smith about their part in the legendary label's history. It's a parade of jazz, old and new, borrowed and blue... and then some!

RECORDS, JUKEBOXES AND RADIO

American Routes joins with two record men this week to study the means of production... in jazz and country. Michael Cuscuna, founder of Mosaic Records, talks about his reissuing of lavish collectors sets of jazz from Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Count Basie and many more. Al Hawkes joins us from the Maine woods, where he's been making old-time country, bluegrass and rockabilly records since 1955--some of his own, some on his independent Event Records label.
