Diversity, audacity and quality: these are the characteristic
features thanks to which the first German jazz label MPS—a
production company from Schwarzwald—and its founder Hans-Georg
Brunner-Schwer have received world-wide recognition. Between 1963
and 1983, MPS has built a catalog of 500 albums uniquely belonging
to the jazz repertoire. Since 2014, MPS is owned by Edel AG.
From that moment, the catalog has continually expanded. Starting from the end of 2017, every album will be available in digital format. Furthermore, the sought-after titles from the catalog only available on CD, tape or vinyl will be frequently rereleased in a superior quality, like the albums of Oscar Peterson, George Duke and Monty Alexander. Besides, after more than 30 years of creative break, the label’s activity has been relaunched. Therefore, new productions were released with, among others, albums from Rolf Kühn, Malia, Django DeLuxe, Malakoff Kowalski and Lisa Bassenge. These efforts were successful: they received 3 German ECHO Jazz awards. During the release of Mari Boine’s and China Moses’ new albums, future world renowned artists will also be revealed at MPS.
