13 – unlucky for some but, after the year we’ve all had, we thought we’d push the boat out for this one. It literally can’t get any worse.*
First off, for all of this weekend you can use the code ‘edition13’ over at our online store to receive 13% off everything – that includes pre-orders for the upcoming albums from the likes of Dave Holland and Chris Potter, as well as the critically-acclaimed new albums from Gretchen Parlato, Fergus McCreadie, Chris Potter (Again! Someone was busy during lockdown!) and Lionel Loueke.
Looking Back, Looking Forward
Founded in 2008 by Dave Stapleton, initially to release his own music, Edition has since grown into a full-scale independent record label working with some of the biggest names in Jazz.
We’ve been proud to release so many incredible records over past 13 years – 170 albums and counting! We’re going to take the weekend to deep dive into the catalogue and enjoy some of our favourites.
Thanks as always for your continued support. The last 12 months have been somewhat challenging to say the least but we’re heading into the future buoyed up by the ever-growing list of phenomenal artists who trust us to share their music. And we can’t pretend that, after Kurt Elling‘s well-deserved Grammy win last month, we’re not aiming to get a few more of those in the cabinet!
New ’13’ Compilation
To coincide with the anniversary, we’ve released a new compilation made up of 13 incredible tracks that have helped shape us as a label.
From Phronesis‘s Abraham’s New Gift from their acclaimed 2010 album Alive, via Dinosaur‘s Living, Breathing from their Mercury Prize nominated 2016 album Together, As One, to brand new tracks from the prodigious British newcomer Fergus McCreadie and our legendary stateside friends, Gretchen Parlato, Chris Potter, Lionel Loueke, Ben Wendel and, of course, Kurt Elling.
The album is available to stream now. Listen here.
Have a great weekend. We’re off to celebrate our 13th like all teenagers would – by drinking too much fizzy pop and kicking a ball through our neighbour’s greenhouse.
