Butman Music Records

Igor Butman’s name is well known far beyond the Russian borders. A Berklee college alumnus, Bill Clinton’s favourite sax player, virtuoso jazz musician, leader of the hottest Igor Butman Big Band, owner of the best Moscow jazz club… And now a creator of his own jazz label called Butman Music!
Igor’s relations with major labels seemed just perfect: his albums were released by Universal Music and Sony BMG and frequently became bestsellers in Russia. Suffice to say more than 20000 copies of Igor’s album “Magic Land” featuring Chick Corea, John Patitucci, Randy Brecker and Jack DeJohnette were sold in these 2 years. Unfortunately, labels’ efforts in international distribution didn’t match Igor’s expectations. It was quite a challenge for jazz fans worldwide intrigued by excellent reviews in the most respectable jazz media and broadcasts at jazz radios to find Igor’s CDs in a local musical store and even at iTunes!
So, the saxman decided to run his own recording business and opened new jazz label Butman Music with his management team in the summer of 2009. In the very beginning he marked the main goals for label to achieve: propaganda of Russian jazz music overseas and its integration in the world musical landscape. And he applied all his efforts to make it possible!
The headquarters of the company are situated in Moscow, and there’s a company’s US office in New York. That’s why the albums are released simultaneously in Russia and the US and also become available at all significant online stores including iTunes, AmazonMP3, Napster and others.
