In an earlier post, we were elated to announce that we placed third in the 2016 NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll. As it turns out, after a brief recount, we actually tied for first place.
We were mentioned (very, very briefly) in The Village Voice, in the unambiguously titled "High Notes: This Year Was Terrible, but at Least Local Jazz Labels Are Thriving."
"...last year the inventive 25-year-old saxophonist Kevin Sun launched Endectomorph Music in Brooklyn."
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]
