James Hamilton launches New Jazz Records
Trumpeter and composer James Hamilton has launched a record label, New Jazz Records, to showcase up and coming artists in the North.
Over the 11 years I’ve lived in Leeds I’ve seen some incredible live jazz music. The city's jazz scene is alive and vibrant with a consistent turn over of new projects and original music. New Jazz Records will document some of this amazing creative output from the Leeds jazz scene and beyond, giving up and coming artists the opportunity to record, release and help promote their music.
The Label's debut release will be Drawing Hands by bassist Sam Jackson. This is available in digital formats from the New Jazz Records website for pay-what-you-want. You can also sign up to the mailing list on the site to be kept abreast of the future releases and news from the label.
