The brand stood for "deep catalogue, deep expertise" but digital killed the experience.
Back then jazz album sales were about 3% of the total music sales in America. In 2017 jazz album sales (including downloads) were 1.5% of the total music sales in America. I love Spoitfy as a consumer, but it is killing the jazz music experience, making it just one more commodity.
How do we turn this around? By experiencing jazz live in the clubs where it all began. I hope you can join me, Lyman Medeiros and Alex Neciosup Acuna as we bring it back to where it all began at Catalina Jazz Club this Thursday!
