MAKING OF A NUMBER 1 RECORD

MAKING OF A NUMBER 1 RECORD

No, this isn’t a blog post to toot my own horn so to speak about It’s Easy To Remember making it to #1 on the JazzWeek Charts but…..full disclaimer, it is another post about the importance of labels such as Cellar Live relying on fan engagement and financing to continue to release great recordings. It’s Easy To Remember was recorded live at Smalls Jazz Club in New York City.  The concept of how it came about is quite unique and I venture to guess that the concept is unique to Cellar Live.  For 6 years I have been taking groups...

Okay, I have been a bit lazy with the blog lately but what would you rather have me working on?  A regular blog post?

A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE

A TRIP DOWN MEMORY LANE

I was having a conversation with my dad today about the history of Cellar Live and how the heck we've managed to get 115 titles recorded and released.  It's amazing really.  I started thinking about the first record we did and it suddenly dawned on me that we recently lost another member of the quartet that made ROSS TAGGART QUARTET - Thankfully.  I'm speaking of the great pianist and on this particular record, organist Bob Murphy.  We lost Ross over 3 years ago. What started as a little pet project exploded into a full fledged record label. I will never...

NEW WEBSITE & METALWOOD

NEW WEBSITE & METALWOOD

I'm really excited to finally have www.cellarlive.com back in my hands.  For the last 7 years or so we were using a U.S.-based company to handle all of our order taking, shipping etc.  It meant we had to charge in U.S. dollars and with the dollar being relatively similar it was never an issue. With the recent decline of the CAD dollar and the significant increases in shipping fees at USPS I decided it was time to bring the administration of the website back to Canada. We are a Canadian record company after all.  So here we are with brand a...
