Greenleaf Music is New York-based independent music company owned, operated and curated by trumpeter and composer Dave Douglas. A modern jazz label devoted to the original work of living musicians, the company’s primary focus is creativity in musical expression. Greenleaf’s sound is defined by the artists signed to it, and the room they are given to explore their own sonic world. Greenleaf is a platform for a diversity of expression by Dave Douglas and our other artists. Each recording represents a new and distinct vision.
In addition to being a home base for all of Douglas’ diverse projects since 2005, Greenleaf Music has been a launching pad for emerging artists and composers including Ryan Keberle, Kneebody, Donny McCaslin, Linda Oh, Rudy Royston, Matt Ulery, Greg Ward and others. These releases have helped to establish these voices in today’s jazz scene both domestically and internationally. Producing CDs, vinyl records, downloads, sheet music, subscriptions, and podcasts as well as a blog with artist commentary and discussion, Greenleaf Music creates a dynamic community of listeners that supports artists fully and fairly.
