Interview with Leonardo Pavkovic of MoonJune Records

From jazzuality.com:

Some people believe in following the market trend will lead to success, but think if everybody does it. Music as a progressive thing needs much more than that to grow. It’s good to see what the market want, but on the other side, we can’t close our eyes to the alternatives and something new in creativity that often come with great skills and amazing music. What I’m saying is, we do really need some source which dare to go against the market trends, so music will keep on having something new to offer.

Thank God we have MoonJune Records. Moonjune came in 2001 as the brainchild of Leonardo Pavkovic, the enterpreneurial producer, tour manager and promoter. MoonJune got its name from “The Moon in June” the Soft Machine drummer Robert Wyatt’s famous 1970 epic. MoonJune’s focus is to release internationally-situated music by atists exploring the expanding boundaries of genuine, challenging, non-over-produced music that can’t be categorized easily into any specific format. With 28 titles available in the catalogue right now, being reviewed worldwide in over 40 countries, and of course will keep growing bigger, we know that MoonJune is fully commited on the right path and at the same time essential for the music world, especially jazz in particular.
