Soul Jazz Records (Record label)
Soul Jazz Records is a British record label, founded in 1990 and specializing in reissues, rarities and compilations. Emerging from a record store in London’s Soho district, Soul Jazz Records became an institution for good music over the past twenty years. To focus on the value of music and make it last, has been the idea behind the label. Therefore they don’t just release rare, less known and unknown sound material, but put the music into a bigger context by releasing compilations, dvds and books. The world of Soul Jazz Records is full of links between jazz, post punk, reggae, world music and electronica.
