Mack Avenue Records Proudly
Announces Acquisition of MAXJAZZ


Mack Avenue Records is proud to announce the acquisition of the prestigious MAXJAZZ imprint. The announcement follows a landmark year for Mack Avenue Records with five GRAMMY® Award-nominations and two wins for bassist Christian McBride and vocalist Cécile McLorin Salvant. To add to the Detroit label's well-rounded catalog, MAXJAZZ boasts two of their own GRAMMY® nominations for Carla Cook and Nancy King, and features recordings from esteemed artists: Mulgrew MillerRené MarieRussell MaloneGeoffrey Keezer, and more.

Founded by the late Richard McDonnell in 1997, MAXJAZZ had a reputation for being an artist-friendly label that took a long-term view of partnership with their artists. With nearly 75 recordings, MAXJAZZ worked to support and develop their artists with high quality recordings and recognizably branded packaging. The label was also keen to establish long-running relationships with some of the country's top jazz clubs, even releasing live recordings from Jazz Standard, Yoshi's, Jazz at the Bistro, and more.

"We welcome MAXJAZZ to the Mack Avenue Records family," says Mack Avenue Records president Denny Stilwell. "We see this as an appropriate fit-we share a foundation based on a genuine passion for the music, and their philosophical approach is really in line with our vision for how artists and labels can work together."

The addition of MAXJAZZ expands Mack Avenue Records' growing label, which already includes the Artistry Music, Rendezvous Music, and Sly Dog imprints.
