Record Label Profiles

Cuneiform Records

By Published: December 28, 2006
Much of the jazz-based music on Cuneiform is similarly genre-busting; groups like Curlew and the deservedly lauded Claudia Quintet led by drummer John Hollenbeck are witty, exploratory, complex and often whimsical, showing just how far this music has come in its hundred year history. Next May however, the label turns a new page in its jazz catalogue with the release of a Steve Lacy and Roswell Rudd quartet disc; taken largely from the group's final US tour, it will also contain approximately 25 minutes of material from 1962, presenting a welcome overview of this long-standing and influential duo. It only shows that there's no telling what corner of the market this consistently high-quality label will invade next.
