Basin Street Records

Basin Street Records was formed in 1997. The first project for the label was the recording of Kermit Ruffins' The Barbecue Swingers Live in November 1997 in front of a packed house at Tipitina's in New Orleans.

Basin Street Records went on to sign Los Hombres Calientes in March 1998, and in April and May 1998 led all labels with CD sales at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Since that festival, Basin Street Records has had top selling CDs at every New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Basin Street has shared in the success of its artists and has received offBeat's Best of the Beat Award for Best Record Label six times (2000, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2009). In addition, Basin Street was named Music Business of the Year at the Best of the Beat Awards in both 2003 and 2004.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
