Jazz Is Dead

Jazz Is Dead
A love story

Jazz Is Dead (JID) is the brainchild of music producers Adrian Younge, Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest), concert producer Andrew Lojero and industry veteran Adam Block, founded in 2017. 

All open minds are welcome

Jazz Is Dead is a cultural movement redefining the way we listen, feel & think about great music. They travel the world searching for rare records and the artists who created them, digging through the crates for the music and stories that capture our imagination and unite us, with a passion that is driven by honouring the legacies of these musical heroes through live concerts, visual media and new analog recordings.

Under the label, co-founders Adrian Younge and Ali Shaheed Muhammad have produced albums with their musical heroes including luminaires such as Roy Ayers, Lonnie Liston Smith, João Donato, Azymuth, Gary Bartz, Jean Carne, Marcos Valle and Tony Allen.
