Despite everything else that happened in 2016 we've had a great year that we're very proud of. Here are some of the nice reviews we've received for our releases this year starting in January: The Boston Creative Jazz Scene in the Boston Globe "The music on the “Creative Jazz” set showcases a wide variety of styles, from the Mark Harvey Group’s near-silences and tumultuous eruptions to the transcendent explorations of the Phill Musra Group, which worked in the sacred space carved out by late Coltrane, Albert Ayler, and other masters of questing free jazz".

The Loft David Mancuso RIP

David Mancuso was an early inspiration when I started collecting records seriously as a DJ. This playlist is taken from the top 100 Loft Charts from the book - Last Night A DJ Saved My Life. Not the rarest of tracks here but it always serves as a benchmark for tracks that I consider DJing and/or releasing as far as quality is concerned. David was such an innovator in the way he programmed music for the night, setting up the soundsystem, and building a unique community of love and spirituality.
