Jazz from Rant is an independent music label created by a musicians’ collective of jazz artists, improvisors and composers. Our recordings document musical projects and groups that range from wild improvised music, orchestral innovation, celestial jazz guitar, swinging song for kids, dramatic torch songs and thought-provoking poetry.
We started this label way back when we were making cassettes in Chinatown, Toronto, Canada and R.A.N.T. stood for “recording artists’ network of Toronto” and a certain exclamatory attitude. Now we have been based in Montréal, Québec for a few decades. As we spread out globally, and in light of our precognitive musical abilities, it now stands for the “recording artists’ network of tomorrow”. We have over 50 recordings and more master tapes soon to be in production.
