  Music: Identifying the Impulse
Blue Note Records are concerned with identifying its impulse, not its sensational and commercial adornments." It was evident Lion had not jumped into this venture haphazardly.
Blue Note went on to debut many important talents, but Monk would prove to be their greatest "discovery."
Lion and his wife were reunited with many of Blue Note's extended family of musicians (a recording of the event has just been reissued), and there he met Cuscuna for the first time, along with Bruce Lundvall, the label's newly appointed president.

 Blue note - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The blue notes correspond approximately to the flattened third, flattened fifth, and flattened seventh scale degrees, although they approximate non-equal tempered pitches found in African work songs; specifically, the flatted seventh may often be a justly tuned minor seventh.
The blues scale is used in almost all twelve-bar and eight-bar blues, but it is also used in blues ballads and in conventional popular songs with a "blue" feeling, such as Harold Arlen's "Stormy Weather".
Blue notes are also heard in English folk music (Lloyd 1967, p.52-4), but are not usually in the usual blues progression.

Technically, a blue note is a micro-tonally lowered third, seventh, or fifth degree of the diatonic scale.

Blue Note’s music was, as its founder Alfred Lion, puts it “without commercial adornments.” Even without a prior knowledge of what Blue Note was about, one can derive from this statement a serious commitment to the music rather then to commercial success or musical fads.

Blue Note has taken the re-release process even further by adding both the Connoisseur and Rare Groove CD series.
Albums that came out last summer as regular Blue Note re-issues are now Connoisseur, with an inflated price tag and a threat that this is a limited edition run that won't be further re-released after stocks are sold out: Sounds a silly threat designed to get collectors rushing to preserve their favourite albums on CD.
Why Blue Note doesn't take the same approach as Impulse, high quality re-issues at a reasonable price that are made as long as there is a demand, is strange indeed.

 NPR : 'Blue Note Records, The Biography'
The period defined by 1953-4 is one of the most critical in Blue Note's history, since so many of the characteristic qualities which define, for many, the Blue Note style, were set in place.
As Blue Note's business began to grow, he and Wolff realized that they had to have a regular turnover of new material if the label was going to keep its place in the newly expanding world of jazz microgroove records.
Quality control, which was a preoccupation of Lion's, saw to it that there were very few duds among Blue Note's release schedule, even as the pace of their recording increased.
