Text excerpt below:
In the last year, a missionary-like zeal has taken hold of a handful of independent jazz labels dotting the five boroughs. Some, like Harlem's Biophilia, are run out of apartments. Others operate in modest offices...
...Other indie labels in Manhattan — HighNote/Savant, Palmetto, to name a couple — sit closer, like Motéma does, to straight-ahead jazz. But Brooklyn's AUM Fidelity, Northern Spy, and Yeah Yeah Records, for instance, tend to veer toward the serrated edges. And like Biophilia, many of these were founded by jazz musicians. Almazan is a pianist best known for playing in Terence Blanchard's band; last year the inventive 25-year-old saxophonist Kevin Sun launched Endectomorph Music in Brooklyn. [emphasis all mine]
