Resonance Records to Stream Its Trove of Historical Jazz Albums

Resonance Records has recently established itself as the premiere jazz label unearthing historical releases in the digital age, but it has found success the old-fashioned way: primarily by selling CDs and vinyl LPs. That changed on Thursday, when the label joined the streaming universe.

Over the next two months, Resonance plans to move its roughly 60-album catalog — featuring live recordings by the likes of Sarah Vaughan, Bill Evans, Shirley Horn, Stan Getz and Wes Montgomery — onto Apple Music, Spotify and Tidal, as well as streaming services in France.

On Thursday, Resonance released almost all the albums in its archive that prominently feature pianists and vocalists, including a 1982 duet at Keystone Korner in San Francisco of the piano luminaries Jaki Byard and Tommy Flanagan, and a 1978 performance by Vaughan at the New Orleans club Rosy’s. (Like almost every album in Resonance’s roster, those recordings had never been commercially released before the label put them out a few years ago.)
