Gut String Records

Gut String Records is the personal label of New York City bassist, composer, and bandleader Neal Miner. The name comes from Miner's preference for gut strings instead of the more fashionable metal strings. The label's tradition-minded recording method involves using just a few mics and everyone playing together in one space without headphones. Miner's first project, Happy Hour, was released in the spring of 2009.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
