Outlet FOR JAZZ, WORLD & CLASSICAL
TYQmusic offers many, but not all, labels in jazz, world music and other genres. Nor is it our intention to offer you the full catalogue of these labels. In a way, we do the opposite. In our web shop we offer in many cases those albums that other web shops can no longer get because the labels are no longer distributed or the albums are sold out. Chances are that you will find an album with us that you have been looking for since many years.
Set up in Italy in 1975, the label has since been specializing in Jazz, Improvised, Experimental, Free and Avant Garde Music.

CAM Jazz started reissuing the extensive Black Saint catalog counting over 190 albums, using the original artwork.

Chiaroscuro Records is an American jazz label. It was founded by Hank O’Neal in the early 1970s. The first release was a record with piano solos by Earl Hines, an album that received a Grammy nomination. More than a hundred albums followed in the years 1970-1978, from 1976 mostly recorded in O’Neal’s recording studio in New York’s West Village. The label mainly focused on the old guard of mainstream jazz, such as Benny Carter, Gerry Mulligan, Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Frank Foster and Nat Adderley. The catalogue also includes avant-garde jazz.
