Over the last decade, Edition has evolved from a cottage industry and self-releasing artist based label, into a 21st Century global music company intending on supporting a progressive and creative artist roster to develop, impact and thrive in the digital age. The British based label has become an invaluable resource center of exciting and compelling artists who abhor complacency and despise predictability yet strive to find new pathways in their own explorations of this music.

 

biography

THIS EDITION is a new live-project formed to initiate serendipitous opportunities and potential future collaborations by bringing together band leaders from Edition into one unit to explore, take risks, and share a respect and love of music-making. At the helm, a selected musical-director will craft and shape the focus, who, together with founding CEO Dave Stapleton, will select the group of musicians. In 2020, the inaugural year of this project, that role falls to the creative and adventurous mind of US drummer Jeff Ballard, who released his Edition debut album ‘Fairgrounds’ in January 2019. With a desire to weave local cultures and folk music into the music, the selected global band for 2020 includes Danish bassist Jasper Høiby, German pianist Pablo Held, Finnish trumpeter Verneri Pohjola and British saxophonist Julian Argüelles.

review
“Edition could be my favourite British Jazz Label” BBC Radio 6, Gilles Peterson
“Daring and catholic, the fast-growing UK independent label Edition is becoming a match for its near namesake, Munich’s Edition of Contemporary Music (or ECM).” BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE
‘Edition Records might be a small but growing operation, but there was a time 40 years ago when ECM Records was at much the same stage in Munich, and Edition reveals similar sixth sense for emerging innovators’. GUARDIAN
‚Today‘s hippest label in Great Britain‘ Jazzthing (GERMANY)
“…the British company Edition records…A company led by Dave Stapleton has evolved to be one of the major record companies for Scandinavian jazz.” JAZZNYT (DENMARK)
Jeff Ballard’s latest album “Fairgrounds”:
‘The music is both physical and ethereal, and at times feels as if the entirety of Weather Report’s canon is on shuffle. Rather than clashing, these utterly distinct gambits find several ways to coexist’ Downbeat, Jim Macnie, 2019
“On the album the ensemble acquires an entirely different density, structuring itself as a series of contrasting miniatures: experimental electro worthy of the Warp label, ambient, vintage jazz-funk, bluesy trance, free, rhythms of the world…so many steps in an eclectic and yet perfectly coherent itinerary, a fascinating reflection of the musical ferment of our time.” Jazz Magazine, FR

As a record label that is continuously redefining its thinking on what purpose a record label has in the 21st Century, Edition is sat at the centre of some world-class artists with the conviction and passion to share new music with an open set of values and forward-thinking to grab an opportunity in becoming a dominant player in the global Jazz scene. THIS EDITION is another opportunity and outlet to showcase the individual exuberance, collective creativity and breadth of talent Edition has to offer.
