Summer has ended, fall has begun! Thus we would to like to wrap up the season in style and draw focus to some of the fantastic releases we have had the pleasure of releasing.

The Duo – Duke Ellington 100
Mulgrew Miller & Niels Henning- Ørsted Pedersen

This is one of those releases that is really close to our hearts here at the office. It has taken so many years for it to come into realization, and the music these two legends produce is so beautiful!

Enrico Pieranunzi – The Copenhagen Concert
Feat. Marc Johnson & Paul Motian

This is another release that has been many many years underway. The recording from 1996 in the legendary, and now closed, Copenhagen venue Jazzhouse sees Pieranunzi let all his virtuosic energies flow freely in a high tempo alongside Marc Johnson & Paul Motian.

Thomas Fonnesbæk & Justin Kauflin
Standards

A Danish bass legend alongside an American piano legend jamming a set of classic tracks as part of their warm up routine during the recording of a fantastic album! What’s not to like? Laidback and the same time tightly performed interpretations of Bud Powell, Duke Ellington, Oscar Peterson and more…
