Pi Recordings

Pi Recordings is a New York-based record label dedicated to releasing innovative music by artists with unique and defining voices. We spotlight composers, improvisers and bandleaders who are pushing music in new, groundbreaking ways. Jazz artists have never had a wider musical palette at their disposal than now, and they are using it to create music that is more varied, profound and vibrant than ever before. Pi Recordings is here to capture what we recognize as the high points of these developments. The best of the best.

We have released over 25 recordings showcasing some of the most influential musicians in experimental jazz and creative music, including Henry Threadgill, the Art Ensemble of Chicago, Muhal Richard Abrams, Wadada Leo Smith, Anthony Braxton, Roscoe Mitchell, George Lewis, The Revolutionary Ensemble, as well as Marc Ribot, James “Blood” Ulmer, Vijay Iyer, Rudresh Mahanthappa, Steve Lehman, Amir ElSaffar, Liberty Ellman, Tyshawn Sorey and others
