Classic Jazz Records: There’s an App for That

A new app by Concord Music Group makes it easier than ever for Spotify users to stream classic jazz albums. It’s called Stylus, and it sure looks promising. The app’s album library contains over 1,200 titles from Concord’s family of record labels, including Concord Records, Concord Jazz, Stax, Fantasy, Hear Music, Milestone, Riverside, Specialty, Telarc, Peak, Heads Up, Prestige and Rounder Records. Listeners can filter their music stream by genre or create a playlist based on personal tastes. Unlike other music streaming apps, like Pandora or Last.Fm, Stylus gives listeners the ability to repeat, rewind, and backtrack through song selections. This is gold for jazz fans like me who require multiple listens to nail down those transcriptions.
