Aerophonic Records

Aerophonic Records is a 100% artist-run label. It was founded in the winter of 2013 by well-known Chicago saxophonist Dave Rempis (Rempis Percussion Quartet, The Engines, Ballister, Vandermark Five) to document his ongoing work, since many of the non artist-run labels in the world of jazz and improvised music at that time seemed to be giving up a collective last gasp. Today it remains a 100% artist-run entity.

Rempis’ intent with the label is to continue the overall trend of artist control and responsibility that has characterized his own career, and that of jazz artists in the 21st century generally. It gives him more direct contact with his audience, more control over how his work is presented, and more synchronicity between touring schedules and recorded output.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
