The Saphu Records Catalog offers recordings of contemporary jazz artists in classic, timeless style. Since 1993 Saphu Records has featured select West coast jazz musicians performing original compositions and time honored jazz standards. As an independent boutique-type label, Saphu Records provides jazz artists with the benefits associated with label membership without surrendering artistic control of their music. The result of this artistic freedom is music created by the artist's vision rather than the requirement to fullfil a label's quota of commercially palatable products. Traditional jazz instrumentation ( the Tony Pacini Trio's piano, bass, drums configuration ) as well as the unorthodox ( Keith Barry on jazz viola ) are represented in the Saphu collection.
Since it's inception, Saphu recordings have utilized the latest digital technology in both studio and live recordings in order to bring the music as acoustically true as possible to the listener. This is what we call Real Jazz.
