Origin/OA2 Records

Origin are a Seattle-based independent jazz label; run for musicians by musicians. Their fundamental goals are simple: to provide a home for our artists' ongoing work, as their careers and musical voices continue to evolve, and to introduce our customers (and themselves!) to new and refreshingly unexpected music, while maintaining an uncompromised artistic quality throughout the catalog. Celebrating our 15th year in 2012, Origin release three dozen new recordings a year and represent over 240 artists across the Origin, OA2 and Origin Classical labels.
