"The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between." - Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Double Moon Records

Founded 1998 in Freiburg (Black Forest), the label moved to Cologne in 2000, and back to Freiburg in 2013. The motto remains valid: “Just Good Music”. The emphasis is on improvised music, but the stylistic range is nearly umlimited. From mainstream jazz to avantgarde, from acoustic jazz to electronic, from “world jazz” to “lounge” you will find a great variety of just good music. Among the main artists there are established names like Chico Freeman, Jean-Paul Bourelly and Enrico Rava and sidemen like Joe Lovano, Roy Hargrove, and Mark Turner. The label moreover very much cares about new talents. In a unique series, launched together with the popular German jazzmagazine “Jazz thing”, Double Moon presents young artists that serve wider recognition – the next generation of jazz.
