OUTNOTE Records is a label devoted to jazz. It reflects the vitality of today's creation with high standards in artistic choices and production combined with openness to innovation that constitutes the very essence of 'the most highbrow type of popular music'. An ambitious project, OUTNOTE Records was born in 2010 following the encounter of Charles Adriaenssen, President of the Outhere Music group, and Jean-Jacques Pussiau, founder of OWL Records (now a Universal label) and Nightbird Music. OUTNOTE Records has honoured its commitments, constituting a special showcase where the musical ‘state of things' of artists of confirmed, recognized talent as well as of young, upcoming musicians is established.

The label's artistic director, Jean-Jacques Pussiau, has remained faithful to values that have enabled him to contribute to building the work of classic jazzmen (Michel Petrucciani, Stéphane Grappelli, Helen Merrill, Dave Liebman, Lee Konitz, Paul Bley, Eric Watson, Kenny Werner, Martial Solal, Ray Barretto...). For OUTNOTE Records, recordings still represent the media through which a musician propels his inspiration from the development stage to that of the elaborated work, set in a particular moment of vast time without, for all that, being rigid. To quote saxophonist Johnny Griffin: 'Jazz is music made by and for people who have chosen to feel good in spite of conditions...'
