After an initial announcement was made back in July of this year, the latest three releases from the St. Louis-based independent label MAXJAZZ are the first to be distributed under a new agreement with Naxos of America.

Headquartered near Nashville in Franklin, Tennessee, Naxos is the leading independent distributor of classical music in the U.S. and Canada, and in recent years also has begun to add selected jazz labels to its roster.

The first three MAXJAZZ albums that Naxos is handling are bassist Ben Wolfe's From Here, first released back in August; Essential Elements, a trio date that came out in October and is the label's first from NYC pianist/organist Ben Paterson; and Where or When, the brand new release and MAXJAZZ debut from Italian saxophonist Emanuele Cisi.

Naxos distributes nearly 35,000 titles on CD and DVD to traditional retail stores, and also supplies a catalog of more than 30,000 albums to various digital music outlets. The company also offers marketing, publicity, e-commerce, and various other support services to its distributed labels.

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.
