Cantaloupe Music

Cantaloupe Music is the record label created in March 2001 by the three founders of New York's legendary Bang on a Can Festival: composers Michael Gordon, David Lang, and Julia Wolfe, and Bang on a Can managing director Kenny Savelson. Cantaloupe Music is making waves across the country for its adventurous new sounds, and has formed a partnership with harmonia mundi for exclusive U.S. and U.K. distribution, SonArt for distribution in Australia, Sunny Moon for Germany, MA Recordings for Japan, and SRI for Canada. In 2001, all five of Cantaloupe's premiere releases were selected for a major publication's Top 10 list. The raves continued for Cantaloupe's 2002 releases, with Top 10 accolades from the Boston Herald, The Wire, WNYC-FM, and more.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
