Dear Fans and Friends,
Due to the current situation (corona virus) we are forced to postpone or cancel all our scheduled tours and concerts until further notice. We will communicate the new dates as soon as possible.
Furthermore, we have decided to delay al releases on the JAZZLINE and LEOPARD labels until June 2020. After this involuntary break we will restart our operations as lively as ever.
The JAZZLINE / LEOPARD Team
The two labels JAZZLINE & LEOPARD, united under DELTA Music Media GmbH, showcase the broad spectrum of jazz (JAZZLINE), funk (LEOPARD) and related styles. Constraining genre boundaries are often deliberately ignored.
Whereas JAZZLINE focuses predominantly on the so-called “contemporary jazz” segment, involving established artists as well as new discoveries, LEOPARD presents funk, rock and fusion of the highest quality. Both labels are the artistic home of musicians such as Maceo Parker, Randy Brecker, Steps Ahead, Vince Mendoza, the WDR Big Band, Bobby Sparks or Jan Felix May, to name but a few.
In co-operation with the NDR, the ONKEL PÖ series of JAZZLINE makes legendary concert recordings from the influential German venue Onkel Pö in Hamburg available to the public. Recordings of these concerts have never been released before.
JAZZLINE & LEOPARD are managed by the producer and two-times Grammy winner Joachim Becker, who attaches great importance to the quality of production and sound.
Most of the releases are also available on disc, using the direct metal mastering technique and are pressed on 180g.
