Rent Romus Launches Edgetone Records

Californian saxophonist/composer/producer Rent Romus (pictured left) has started his own label, Edgetone Records, to document the burgeoning Bay Area modern jazz and experimental music scene.

To celebrate the new label, Romus and the Lords of Outland will perform music from Avatar In the Field (a tribute to Albert Ayler) April 29 at Musicians’ Union Hall, 116 Ninth St., in San Francisco. The first release from Edgetone is a live album from the Lords of Outland, recorded last June 2000 at San Francisco’s now defunct 848 Community Space. New music from PKD Vortex Project and Guinea Pig/Out of Town will also be released on Edgetone.
