MAXJAZZ deal with Naxos begins
with three new releases

After an initial announcement was made back in July of this year, the latest three releases from the St. Louis-based independent label MAXJAZZ are the first to be distributed under a new agreement with Naxos of America.

Headquartered near Nashville in Franklin, Tennessee, Naxos is the leading independent distributor of classical music in the U.S. and Canada, and in recent years also has begun to add selected jazz labels to its roster.

The first three MAXJAZZ albums that Naxos is handling are bassist Ben Wolfe's From Here, first released back in August; Essential Elements, a trio date that came out in October and is the label's first from NYC pianist/organist Ben Paterson; and Where or When, the brand new release and MAXJAZZ debut from Italian saxophonist Emanuele Cisi (pictured).

Naxos distributes nearly 35,000 titles on CD and DVD to traditional retail stores, and also supplies a catalog of more than 30,000 albums to various digital music outlets. The company also offers marketing, publicity, e-commerce, and various other support services to its distributed labels.
