Strata-East @ 50 featuring Charles Tolliver, Billy Harper, George Cables, Buster Williams, Lenny White and special guest Danny Glover!

Strata-East Records, now in its 50th year, was created by Charles Tolliver & Stanley Cowell. Their first recording in 1970, “Music Inc" & Big Band, launched the label in 1971. Since then the Strata-East concept, a first of its kind provided the professional vehicle by which many important artist-produced recordings reached the marketplace. Some of the artists that the label created and issued original LPs & CDs through its history making conduit include Clifford Jordan, Pharoah Sanders, Jimmy Heath/The Heath Brothers, Cecil McBee, Billy Harper, John Hicks, and Gil Scott-Heron whose Strata-East Winter In America album, with the hit single “The Bottle", was a prime example of the efficacy of the label’s condominium concept.

Since its pioneering inception through to the present, Strata-East continues to occupy its place in history as a beacon and major influence for artists independently issuing their product. And, the two creators of this cult phenomenon never missed a step or skipped a beat along the way with their consummate idiomatic artistry.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
