Rondette Jazz is the sister label of Rondette Records established in 2014. Owned and run by New York City based Ian Hendrickson-Smith; saxophonist, graphic designer and audio engineer. (The Tonight Show, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Amy Winehouse, The Roots, Dr Lonnie Smith, etc)
Make them like we like them.
As simple as it sounds, that's essentially the attitude of Rondette Jazz. Ian believes that a recording and visual esthetic was achieved during the height of jazz's popularity that helped to define the artform. The goal of Rondette Jazz is to make modern day records with those same sensibilities and a dedication to the little details is how we get there.
We love soulful music that swings. We love the blues. We love jazz!
The other part of the label is Rondette Records. It is owned and run by Organist Adam Scone. This part of the label focuses on the other music we love that falls outside of the Jazz world.
Scone has been involved in a plethora of projects over the years and has wide ranging musical tastes. His unique experiences are as diverse as performing in the intimate setting of the Village Vanguard in New York City, going to over 40 countries as a Music Ambassador & performing at the worlds top and largest Music Festivals.
We love all good music, and we want to make Records that we love from beginning to end!
