The Oral History Of AUM Fidelity: Steven Joerg’s DIY Avant-Garde Label Celebrates Its 15th Anniversary

From The Village Voice:

In an interview with the Voice last year, AUM Fidelity head Steven Joerg made his mantra crystal clear: “Giants walk among us now, and you’ve got to fucking pay attention.” For the last fifteen years, the proprietor and sole employee of the Brooklyn-based jazz and avant-soul label has been documenting those giants, producing and releasing a pioneering cache of singular music while remaining true to his DIY ethos.
