Apparently, I’ve been living under a rock, because I wasn’t aware that the Naxos Music Library had added Virgin Classics and EMI Classics. Those of you who live in that world can tell me whether or not that’s exciting. I have some sense that it is.
What seems to be even more of a coup to my mind is the addition of Blue Note to the Naxos Music Library Jazz. That’s particularly impressive, because our access to this service has been sort of ancillary, to be honest–basically, we have a nice package deal.
The Blue Note label has always been noticeably absent from Naxos Jazz as well as the Alexander Street Jazz Music Library. Not anymore. Between the two services, I think the UNR Libraries currently provide access to a very well rounded collection of streamable jazz, so for me, personally, I’m excited about that, and I hope you all are, too.
It just goes to show you that I should come out from under my rock from time to time.
