Strata-East Records Strata-East Records is an American record company and label specialising in jazz that was founded in 1971 by Charles Tolliver and Stanley Cowell with the release of their first recording Music Inc. The label released over 50 albums in the 1970s. Many of the label's releases are now hailed as prime examples of 1970s Post-Bop, Spiritual Jazz, and Afro-Jazz.

Gil Scott-Heron recorded his 1974 album Winter in America with Brian Jackson for Strata-East. “The Bottle” featured on the album, was a popular single. This album stands as one of the label's most well-known recordings.

Clifford Jordan and Bill Lee, father of Spike Lee, were involved in numerous releases.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
