Dear Jazz fan,
Blue Jack Jazz Records is the label of the Foundation for the release
of temporary jazzmusic.
Its vision and main aims are in a nutshell:
First and foremost the rediscovery and release of forgotten historic
jazz sound material, which would otherwise disappear without notice.
Secondly the bringing together of established jazz artists with new
talents to be recorded for release on CD.
Besides, during our trips in Europe we came across some very enthusiastic
young musicians playing jazz just on the streets creating such a special
atmosphere, that we decided to record their music too occasionally,
despite our vision stated above.
As there is much interesting jazz music around in various styles,
we narrow our activities down to the post-sixties period of melodic
modern mainstream jazz performed by Dutch jazz musicians, "with
the odd American or fellow European here and there"!
Even so, there remain enough sides open to Blue Jack Jazz to categorize
their releases in, as the following captions show:
JAZZ FROM THE STREETS OF EUROPE
FULL HOUSE LIVE RECORDING SESSIONS
MEMORABLE JAZZ FROM THE RADIO DAYS
BLUE JACK JAZZ STUDIO SESSIONS
Now, as we are nearing our first quinquennium it is remarkable to
notice that some musicians stand out not only performancewise, but
also by the number of appearances on our label, such as John Engels
(over 10 times) as well as Hod O’Brien and Harry Emmery (each
7 times), whilst others such as Rob Agerbeek and Axel Hagen consider
themselves already "Blue Jack Jazz artists" by mutual understanding.
We hope you will enjoy our music. Click here: www.bluejackjazz.com
