We all know him from the movie PURPLE RAIN and as a member of the bands THE FAMILY und THE TIME: St. Paul Peterson. Now this all-round musician will release his new studio album under the LEOPARD label.

Exquisite funk, soul and pop will be assembled on this recording scheduled for release in spring of 2021. It will be the first album of the erstwhile Atlantic Records artist since 2004. We are excited!


Alongside Mark Lettieri, CODY WRIGHT is one of the hottest young electronic bass musicians in the United States. Cody will strengthen our artist roster at JAZZLINE. More news on him in the near future!


MARRIAGE MATERIAL is the name of the band established by percussionist Felix Lehrmann from Berlin and bassist Thomas Stieger.

Together with their colleagues Raphael Meinhart (vibes, marimba...) and Arto Mäkelä (g) the four young gentlemen present their debut album on JAZZLINE. For their first recording they have also invited guest artists: Kurt Rosenwinkel, Julian & Roman Wasserfuhr, Simon Oslender and many more.


Phil was Prince’s musical director when he showed up at the Montreux Jazz Festival some years ago with a surprisingly large band, a big band that is. We are pleased that Phil Lassiter has signed a contract with LEOPARD and will release his future albums under our label. His first new album will be exceptionally funky and many special guests are joining him: Juan Luis Guerra, David Paich (Toto), Durand Bernarr (Erykah badu), Mono Neon (Prince), Jeff Coffin (Dave Mathews Band), Robert Sput Searight (Snarky Puppy), Munir Hossn, Nate Werth (Snarky Puppy), Mackenzie (NPG Tribute Band), Nikki Glaspie (Dumpstaphunk) and many more.
The album will be released in spring of 2021.
