Schema Records

A favorable environment is the onset for growth, the birth of Ishtar can be seen under this light. Luciano Cantone and Davide Rosa shared a common desire to create new grounds that could be expanded by a new market that was starting to develop. Schema Records was the outcome of the favorable conditions created by Luciano & Davide with the collaboration of Nicola Conte.

The initial projects like the Paolo Achenza trio and Quintetto X established further grounds for this collaboration to grow over the years, and bloom into Schema at the beginning of 1997. Although the roots of the label are mainly influenced by jazz and bossa nova, Schema has an appeal for all kinds of music and embraces true experimentation since its the real knowledge of our past mixed with today's technologies that makes the true basis of music making in this 3rd millenium.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
