Butman Music Records

| Maintained by Diana Kondrashin


Moscow, Russian Federation


Leading Russian jazz record label founded by Igor Butman.

Igor Butman’s name is well known far beyond the Russian borders. A Berklee college alumnus, Bill Clinton’s favourite sax player, virtuoso jazz musician, leader of the hottest Igor Butman Big Band, owner of two best Moscow jazz clubs and core Russian jazz label called Butman Music!

The saxman decided to run his own recording business and opened new jazz label Butman Music with his management team in the summer of 2009. In the very beginning he marked the main goals for label to achieve: propaganda of Russian jazz music overseas and its integration in the world musical landscape. And he applied all his efforts to make it possible! Most respected jazz magazines including Downbeat, JazzTimes, JazzForum, JazzPodium and many others cover label’s releases, and tracks from label’s back catalogue are played by top US and European radio stations.
