Muse Records was an American record label active circa 1972 to 1996 which released jazz and blues music. Muse was founded by Joe Fields, previously an executive for Prestige Records in the 1960s. The label became a haven for producers who were leaving their failing major labels. Often they brought their musician relationships with them, as well as session tapes , some of the resulting releases were reissues from the failed labels, but most, however, were brand new music.
Volume 3 covers Muse releases 5037-5055 (5050 & 5051 were never used) -- Most of this music was recorded in 1973 or 1974 (excepting the Dorham 1960, and Vick 1966 titles) -- The set opens with a marvelous Phil Woods track followed by Eric Kloss, Pat Martino, Carlos Garnett, Mark Murphy, Catalyst, Eddie Jefferson, Kenny Barron, Teddy Edwards, Red Rodney, The Visitors, Willis Jackson, Dom Um Romao, Louis Hayes, Kenny Dorham, Harold Vick and Lester Bowie.
