blue note - only half lame in 2011

I own a total of 3 blue note albums - somehow I always thought they were the lame cousin of impulse, riverside, etc. . . .I also thought that Blue note jumped the shark when they paired Willi Nelson's demented ramblings with Wynton Marsalis - and then they came out with a live album  - for shame! then - somehow - a blue note add made it through the filters at gmail  - it mentioned trumpet player Ambrose Akinmusire - I was intrigued and checked him out - and am happy I did  - nicely done Blue Note - you are only half lame  -
