Pi Recordings Profiled

Source: Downbeat.

Pi Recordings is one of the most respected labels in jazz, routinely presenting innovative, challenging work from veterans like Henry Threadgill, Art Ensemble of Chicago and Wadada Leo Smith, as well as modern-day masters like Tyshawn Sorey and Vijay Iyer, and up-and-coming creators like saxophonist Anna Webber. The label’s catalog is tightly curated — fewer than 100 releases in two decades — but conceptually unified. Pi releases rigorous, pathbreaking music that stretches the boundaries of jazz while honoring its history.
