Strata-East @ 50 featuring Charles Tolliver, Billy Harper, George Cables, Buster Williams, Lenny White and special guest Danny Glover!

Strata-East Records, now in its 50th year, was created by Charles Tolliver & Stanley Cowell. Their first recording in 1970, “Music Inc" & Big Band, launched the label in 1971. Since then the Strata-East concept, a first of its kind provided the professional vehicle by which many important artist-produced recordings reached the marketplace. Some of the artists that the label created and issued original LPs & CDs through its history making conduit include Clifford Jordan, Pharoah Sanders, Jimmy Heath/The Heath Brothers, Cecil McBee, Billy Harper, John Hicks, and Gil Scott-Heron whose Strata-East Winter In America album, with the hit single “The Bottle", was a prime example of the efficacy of the label’s condominium concept.

Since its pioneering inception through to the present, Strata-East continues to occupy its place in history as a beacon and major influence for artists independently issuing their product. And, the two creators of this cult phenomenon never missed a step or skipped a beat along the way with their consummate idiomatic artistry.
