Audio-B label was started by double bass player Malcolm Creese in 1990 as a vehicle for some of his own projects when no established labels were forthcoming with offers. It has gone on to become one of the most respected independent jazz labels in the UK.

The Audio-B catalogue now boasts albums by many of the highest-profile names in British jazz, including Cleo Laine & John Dankworth, Tony Coe, Christian Garrick, Matt Wates, Kate Williams, Alcyona, Acoustic Triangle and Tim Garland.

In 2000 the label was approached by Sony to pioneer the new Super Audio CD format, and Acoustic Triangle's Interactions album became the first jazz SACD in Britain. Acoustic Triangle, the innovative trio which features multi-award-winning pianist Gwilym Simcock and star saxophonist/composer Tim Garland, is now one of the most celebrated music groups in the world.

Audio-B has a reputation for producing beautifully-packaged audiophile-quality recordings. The label has excellent retail distribution in the U.K. with ProperNote and Audio-B is well represented in North America and the Far East. The Audio-B web site offers fast and secure on-line ordering for CDs, which are also available through Amazon and other suppliers.

The release of The Mystery by Tim Garland in 2007, and with it the appearance of international piano star Chick Corea on the label for the first time, is a significant event for Audio-B. Our artists and their albums have picked up dozens of awards in the last 17 years, and in 2006 the label itself was honoured at the all-party Parliamentary Jazz Awards with the prize for 'Best Web Site' (
