Circle Jazz Records


What originally started in 1976 with a selection of Circle Records live jazz recordings across Europe is now being continued.

Because of the importance of each recording and the great performances it documents we are re-releasing them digitally.

Our intention is to lift the original audio quality to another level because there are reasons why there is a need to improve.

In the 1970s and '80s many live jazz club sessions have been recorded without using a high quality recording equipment.

 In addition, live jazz recordings have been affected by difficult acoustic conditions being recorded in small and noisy clubs.

Therefore, we have decided to use the meanwhile advanced technology to carefully restore and remaster these originals.

This also applies to a selection of Circle Records studio recordings as we are always aiming for an excellent audio quality. 

To feature a high quality digital jazz catalogue we have selected only the finest original records to be digitally remastered.

Most of our releases will still have the same tracklisting as the original vinyl releases but will feature new cover artworks.

Being an independent jazz record company and jazz label, we truly enjoy our constant autonomy and flexibility at any time.

This enables us to constantly improve on different levels and most of all to be able to preserve and share wonderful music.

Finally, we are very happy to release these truly outstanding and rare jazz records again and hope you will enjoy listening.
