“Arabesque Records was created to be a leader in the independent recorded music industry. Recording albums for such classical luminaries as pianists Ian Hobson and Garrick Ohlsson, as well as the Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio, the label quickly gained recognition. Arabesque Recordings distinguished itself as a platform for the production of large-scale projects such as Garrick Ohlsson’s ambitious 13-volume recording of "The Complete Chopin Piano Works."
In 1992 Arabesque recognized a need to promote maturing jazz musicians and introduced Arabesque Jazz, an extension of the original company. Arabesque Jazz first featured artists such as soprano saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom, 8 Bold Souls and vocalist Carmen Lundy. Shortly after establishing Arabesque Jazz the label became home to many jazz legends, including trumpeter Art Farmer and saxophonist Charles McPherson.
Today, the Arabesque family prides itself on its continuing commitment to producing the finest classical and jazz recordings. Arabesque’s classical roster now boasts artists ranging from the American String Quartet to pianists Gabriela Imreh and Bruce Brubaker. Arabesque Jazz also continues to add contemporary artists to its roster while expanding stylistically. Recent additions include trombonist Steve Wiest, organist Radam Schwartz and saxophonist Bobby Selvaggio.
The Arabesque Records include the following labels
- Arabesque Recordings
