NEW EXCLUSIVE VINYL COLLECTION

We’re very excited to introduce a new vinyl collection that features some of the Jazz greats like Benny Golson, Ron Carter, Art Farmer, Branford Marsalis, James Carter, Harold Ashby, and many more. These albums include 10 NEA Jazz Masters, performing at their peak. All records are 180 gram Premium Virgin Vinyl. We put our heart and soul into mastering the tracks, writing liner notes, and creating the artwork.

Listening to vinyl records is a beautiful experience that transports one to a bygone era of music appreciation. The sound on vinyl has the warmth and richness that digital formats often lack, adding depth and character to every note. It’s especially rewarding, when listening to Jazz legends like Benny Golson and Ron Carter.

The stellar rhythm section (Geoff Keezer, Dwayne Burno, and Joe Farnsworth) provides splendid support for the four renowned saxophonists.
 
“Benny Golson’s tribute… is notable for its depth, legitimately great music, and memory. An essential CD for fans of jazz sax. Also, great liner notes with historical commentary by Golson on the tunes and players.”
