Innova Recordings Profiled

From All About Jazz:

Minnesota’s Innova Records is one of the more prolific and longer-standing independent labels working in the US. An extension of the St. Paul-based American Composers Forum, Innova has been issuing a healthy number of discs in a surprising array of styles since 1982. Formal and quirky composed works sit alongside extended improv and teenager radio dramas in the label’s catalogue of over 700 titles. But as with any healthy eclecticism, it isn’t the point but a byproduct of people following their instincts.
