Start Your Free Trial Distributes Jazz Classics

A long-term distribution agreement has been made between the digital music site and Fantasy Records. The agreement allows EMusic to make over 35,000 Fantasy tracks available for purchase and download in the MP3 format. Tracks by many well known artists such as Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk and Charlie Parker are included in this distribution deal. Fantasy is known for reissuing many classic recordings originally released on labels such as Milestone, Riverside and Prestige.

In addition to the catalog of Fantasy tracks, EMusic also features the Xanadu Jazz Catalog, which includes tracks by Dexter Gordon, Al Cohn, Barry Harris and others. Most of the tracks included in this catalog have never been released on compact disc – including rare bop sessions, mostly from the 1945-65 period.
