Recently, we shared our belief that the Blue Note at Sea Experience is special because it is the sum of many beautiful elements, creating a musical mosaic like no other.
Mosaic Element #1 was our amazing lineup of main show headliners (Marcus Miller, Robert Glasper, Chris Botti, Sheila E, Cecile McLorin Salvant, Christian McBride, Brad Mehldau, David Sanborn). Nowhere else in the world is there a gathering of such top musicians, not just for an evening, but for days at a time. (If you missed Mosaic Element #1, read it here.)
Equally stunning is the long and fabulous list of Featured Performers, each of whom is a star. We hoped you enjoyed our chat about our All-Star Lineup of Featured Performers. and why they are Mosaic Element #2. (If you missed Mosaic Element #2, read it here.)
Mosaic Element #3 is a bit more cerebral and is driven by illustrious and iconic histories. Let’s delve into why the cruise is called Blue Note! (If you missed Mosaic Element #3, read it here.)
Our 4th Mosaic Element in the Blue Note at Sea Experience is laughter, particularly, the comedic stylings of Alonzo Bodden. This comic genius is right at home with the world of jazz and its musicians. Not sure who is more enamored. (If you missed the email with Mosaic Element #4, read it here.)
Mosaic Element #5 is our mantra, Great Music is the Only Rule! It’s self explanatory… right? Blue Note at Sea presents the very best musicians in jazz and encourages them to express themselves as they see fit. No boundaries, No restrictions. What comes out is one of the most glorious and honest musical experiences you can imagine.
Some say that Blue Note at Sea is musical magic, but there is no sleight of hand, secret tricks or two-way mirrors. Just great music being performed by great musicians in front of great, great guests from all over the world.
Isn’t it time that you Experience Blue Note at Sea?
