Saphu Records

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. Saphu Records, created, owned and operated by professional musicians.

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!
