In 2015, Dot Time records launched its “Legends Series” featuring previously unreleased historical recordings from many of the greatest legends of the jazz genre. Dot Time Records believes that these recordings form an important part of the history of jazz and it is our goal to make these recordings available to jazz lovers around the globe. All recordings are painstakingly restored and newly re-mastered with the goal of presenting these recordings in a modern format while striving to keep the original atmosphere of the recordings intact.
Heading up the Dot Time Records “Legends Series” is jazz historian Jerry Roche. Jerry has a long established track record in the Jazz world. Jerry worked for 13 years with Blue Note subsidiary Mosaic Records, the preeminent Jazz reissue company. During his time at Mosaic, Jerry was involved with the selection of projects and assisted with research, production and packaging. Notable releases included the Grammy Nominated Mosaic Bix Beiderbecke Set (Best Historical Recording) as well as the Venuti/Lang & Prima/Manone sets.
Releases under the “Legends Series” are available on CD, Vinyl and as digital downloads and come with a comprehensive digital booklet that includes extensive liner notes and images.
