Hedonist Jazz - Black Jazz Records

Black Jazz Records was introduced to the public in the early 70’s by Mr. Dick Schory & Gene Russell. As A&R Mr. Russell recognized the need for a jazz music record label which would produce and distribute quality recordings targeted toward the growing market of African Spiritual Jazz.

In it's heyday, Black Jazz Records represented a new and fresh alternative to traditional jazz, embodying the spirit of the black/urban awakening of the civil rights period. During it's six year existence, the record label made a major impact on the jazz world, both domestically and in foreign territories.

The Black Jazz roster consisted of ten
superior instrumentalists and vocalists that included:

Gene Russell - Piano
Rudolph Johnson - Saxophone
Calvin Keys - Guitar
Walter Bishop, Jr. - Piano
Chester Thompson - Organ
Henry Franklin - Bass
Doug Carn - Piano, Organ, Keyboards
Jean Carn - Vocalist
Kellee Paterson - Vocalist
The Awakening - Instrumental Group
