Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records was born on Jan. 8 2008 as a sister project to the Brooklyn Jazz Underground Collective. With a mix of new and returning artists we aim to represent the current streams of jazz, creative and improvised music from artists connected to New York City, We take a hands´-off approach to making records, our core principles are artist control, artist ownership, and artist's vision. We are merely a facilitator for the artist in getting the record made and put out to the listening public.
This approach seems to be working, as BJURecords have released 41 albums (with more coming for 2014). They are different in styles but all strong individual and contemporary explorations of today's jazz music.
