At JMood Records, great music with a world view is centric to the label's success! Each composition is hand crafted and the artists are selected for their musical talent, potential and contribution to this whole, which makes the music live! Over the years, visionary producer and music impresario Paul Collins has chosen international hit makers to express the essence of the music. At other times, the producer may select "young lions" as a launching pad of fresh takes on jazz standards and original compositions. With a passion, vision and a proprietary blend of producer Paul Collins and music director Roberto Magris' intrinsic music sensibilities, the label has raised the level of jazz music interpretation. Their music has received critical acclaim in the United States, Germany, Italy, Austria, Poland, Finland, Sweden, The United Kingdom, Japan, South America, South Africa, Canada, Jamaica, South America, Belgium, Switzerland, New Zealand and Australia, France just to mention a few. Their music has also been reviewed in DownBeat, Jazz Times, Concerto, Musica Jazz, Cadence, Jazz Wax, and All About Jazz just to mention a few. Like all entrepreneurs in a given field, their jazz concepts and products are hand crafted to be truly accessible to jazz fans around the world. Every serious minded jazz fan should own and discover this music. You will hear elements of straight-ahead, bebop, avanguard, blues, Latin, jazz vocals, instrumentals, small big band, thematic, theatrical and original compositions in various keys, tempos, time signatures. These complex jazz textures and musical foresight, are the result of years of diligent study and application of this truly American art form.
