Riverside Records


Riverside is a historic jazz label, still visible to this day, featuring comprehensive compilations showcasing Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Bill Evans, and other jazz greats. With a core mission, by founders Orrin Keepnews and Bill Grauer, to reissue classic jazz and blues recordings from the 1920s upon its inception in 1953, Riverside Records soon became one of the premier purveyors of modern jazz.
