Year founded 1992
Description Mission Palmetto Records has been an independent leading voice in music since it was founded in 1990. Through its choice of innovative artists and careful attention to sonic value, it has emerged as a heavyweight label, as well as being listed as one of the best jazz labels for four years running in the Downbeat Critics Poll. Its original mission of enabling artists to fulfill their creative visions still remains the label's focus. According to Palmetto founder and producer, Matt Balitsaris, the label has succeeded so well because it makes music that matters to the artist and to the audience. Palmetto also supports artists who are often overlooked or are considered somewhat "left of center". This enables the label to help expand the boundaries and even the vocabulary of jazz, and also gives the artists the freedom they need to make great music. Palmetto truly believes the future of jazz is now.
