Leo Records

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Leo Records is an English jazz record label, which releases Russian jazz in addition to material from American and British musicians.

Leo Records was founded in 1979 by Leo Feigin (also known under his broadcasting name Aleksei Leonidov), a Russian immigrant to Britain.[1] The label was particularly associated with establishing the world reputation of the Ganelin Trio during the 1970s and 1980s.[2]

It is generally associated with more experimental releases. The label has a close relationship with the artists who release material on the label; it does not sign artists to contracts, but releases their material on a single-album basis. By 2010 there were over 700 titles in Leo Records catalogue. Leo Records comprises four labels: Leo Records, Leo Lab (Leo Records Laboratory), Golden Years of New Jazz, and FeetFirst records.
