New Artists Records, an independent label run by a collective of jazz musicians, is dedicated to the creation and production of improvised music. Originally established in 1982 by pianist Connie Crothers and drummer Max Roach, the label’s first release was the now-legendary Swish (NA1001), a critically acclaimed Crothers/Roach duo recording.
New Artists' reputation for uncompromising improvisation is reflected in its structure — each member of the collective functions as an independent producer with complete creative freedom. The label provides a platform for the type of highly individual music that is too often overlooked by conventional distribution channels.
