"Consider this the opening shot in the latest revolution to hit New York's improv scene." - Time Out New York

"Think of it as a mix-tape, a calling card from artists who operate in a small world but like to think big." - JazzTimes (on the BJU Compilation, Vol. 1)

"Brooklyn jazz is happening and those who venture across the bridge will be delighted by the hard-edged ethnically-flavored jazz that they find on the other side. Two great places to start exploring the new artist collective known as 'The Brooklyn Jazz Underground' are Sign of the Times and This is My House, the latest from keyboardist Benny Lackner and bassist Anne Mette Iversen respectively." - All About Jazz New York

Every Monday night this June and July, The Brooklyn Jazz Underground will present an evening of music and movies at the Tea Lounge in Brooklyn, NY. The Collective's popular residency features BJU members leading their own ensembles in performances of original music, followed by a film of the artist's choice.

The Brooklyn Jazz Underground, launched in January 2006, is a collective conceived in the spirit of a new, do-it-yourself music industry, and the emergence of myriad independent artists and record labels, spawning a creative boom which counts Brooklyn as one of its bastions of innovation and artistry. The Brooklyn Jazz Underground is a shining example of a vibrant, thriving, creative group that keeps jazz and improvised music perpetually evolving. Individually and collectively, they serve an important role in our culture and society by providing a bustle of composing, playing and teaching that enriches, delights, provokes, inspires and educates. By pooling their resources, and through cooperative effort, the members create a greater awareness of their work.

Members of the collective recently launched Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records, an artist-owned cooperative record label that has recently released titles from BJU members Alexis Cuadrado, Anne Mette Iversen and Benny Lackner.

BJURecords Mission Statement: Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records is an independent and artist-run label committed to creative and adventurous contemporary improvised music. We strive to put out quality recordings that define the shape of today's jazz. BJURecords is a sister company of the Brooklyn Jazz Underground bandleader collective.

This Spring, members of the Brooklyn Jazz Underground, Alexis Cuadrado, Anne Mette Iversen and Benny Lackner will launch Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records (BJURecords) with three new recordings of all original music. This new label, a sister company to the 10 member Brooklyn Jazz Underground collective, has grown out of the entrepreneurial, do-it-yourself spirit that gave birth to the BJU in January of 2007. With the launch of BJURecords these artists not only continue to be at the forefront of a creative boom that is currently emanating from Brooklyn, but they now engage in releasing their music internationally, starting with new recordings from bassist/composer Alexis Cuadrado, bassist/composer Anne Mette Iversen and Bernard Emer Lackner Ferber, a new ensemble featuring BJU member, pianist/composer Benny Lackner, guitarist Will Bernard, bassist Andrew Emer and drummer Mark Ferber. The launch of Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records will be celebrated will CD release performances at The Jazz Gallery (May 23-Alexis Cuadrado, May 24-Anne Mette Iversen) and at Smalls (June 14-Bernard Emer Lackner Ferber)

"The Brooklyn Jazz Underground is a coalition of artists united by aesthetics as well as geography." - The New York Times

Alexis Cuadrado - Puzzles (BJUR 004), Alexis Cuadrado (bass & compositions), Loren Stillman (saxophone), Brad Shepik (guitar), Mark Ferber (drums), Alan Ferber (trombone, 3, 6, 9), Pete Rende (organ, 5): Alexis Cuadrado's 3rd CD, Puzzles, is an important step forward in the Barcelona-born bassist and composer's career. Not only did he write and arrange the album's music, but the project is completely self-produced. The making of Puzzles also helped inspire him to co-found Brooklyn Jazz Underground Records.

"the spirit of the organization is firmly rooted in Brooklyn. All of the members reside there, and they wanted to give a nod to the vitality of its scene." - The Wall Street Journal

Anne Mette Iversen - Best of West (AMI & 4Corners String Quartet) + Many Places (AMI Quartet) (BJUR 002), Anne Mette Iversen Quartet is - AMI (bass & compositions), John Ellis (saxophones), Danny Grissett (piano), Otis Brown III (drums). 4Corners String Quartet - Tine Rudloff (violin), Sarah McClelland Jacobsen (violin), Anne Lindeskov (viola), Mats Larsson (cello): With Best of the West and Many Places, Anne Mette Iversen presents two (or more) sides of her musical identity in all its glory, offering a burst of creativity and beauty from the fertile and imaginative mind of a Brooklyn-based artist.

"There's power in numbers, and a bunch of local musicians have united to share their ideas and enhance their visibility" "the breadth (and singularity) of these up-and-comers will be obvious"
- The Village Voice

Bernard Emer Lackner Ferber - Night For Day (BJUR 003), Will Bernard (guitar), Andrew Emer (bass), Benny Lackner (piano), Mark Ferber (drums): Bernard Emer Lackner Ferber is a new collective of four distinct musicians (coincidentally all Californians transplanted in NYC) who have come together to create a unique blend of sounds comprised of Will Bernard's blues and New Orleans influences, blended with Emer and Lackner's free form compositions, and Ferber's propulsive, highly interactive drumming. On Night For Day these artists coalesce into a four headed juggernaut. Individually they have performed around the world, and are now planning their first European tour for October, 2008, with performances to take place in Spain, Germany, Greece, Portugal, and more.
