Cellar Live

Timeless, swinging, heartfelt, and resonant. Those are just a few fitting words to describe the exceptional live recordings we release through Cellar Live, the stellar studio sessions we put out through Cellar Music, and the revelatory archival recordings we share with jazz lovers through Reel to Real Recordings. Together, the three imprints make us one of the most active and successful independent jazz labels in North America.

Founded in 2001 by tenor saxophonist and impresario Cory Weeds, the label has released close to 150 recordings. They feature an impressive list of jazz masters, such as Louis Hayes, Harold Mabern, Peter Bernstein, Jeff Hamilton, Charles McPherson, David “Fathead” Newman, Scott Hamilton, and PJ Perry. The roster also includes distinctive voices on their instruments – Jeb Patton, Grant Stewart, Weeds himself, and Juno Award-winning Metalwood among others – along with rising talents like Emmet Cohen, Joshua Bruneau, Ben Paterson, Sam Dillon, and Miki Yamanaka.

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!
