John G. Lee launches new jazz label

Bassist John G. Lee has co-founded a record label dedicated to jazz, Jazz Legacy Productions.

The label will be celebrating jazz with the release of four albums: Cyrus Chestnut’s Spirit, Heath Brothers’ Endurance, Steve Davis’ Eloquence and Sharel Cassity’s Relentless.

Cassity is a new-comer among the other veteran musicians, a trend that is by design of JLP records. They plan to release eight albums each year, with a new name in each set of four.

Lee says, “So many artists who had deals before haven’t been re-signed, which means there’s important music that’s going undocumented. This is a great moment in jazz history, and it would be tragic if that music gets lost.” The albums all have one-word titles and feature photographs by Thomas Haynes in an effort to create a consistent brand, “We wanted people to be able to see our releases and identify them immediately as JLP,” says Lee.
