Half Note discography: 4500 series

This is a discography of the 4500 series of albums released by the US based Half Note label.

The 4500 series replaced the 4900 series in 2003/2004. The 4500 series forms the bulk of the output on the label. These are the only albums released on the label that are listed on the Blue Note venue website.
