Released in 1970, Blue Mode was Reuben Wilson’s third album for Blue Note, He joined the company during a transitional phase when it was readjusting to life after its original co-founder, German-Jewish émigré Alfred Lion, had retired and sold the label to Liberty Records. Wilson was one of several new signings to Blue Note (along with fellow-organist Lonnie Smith) that showed the company moving away from hard bop towards a funkier and more soulful destination.
