The Best In British Jazz

Welcome to Woodville Records

Woodville Records is the home to some of the best mainstream and modern jazz being played in the British Isles today.

It was initially started by jazz saxophonist Alan Barnes in 2003 to provide an outlet for his own recordings of the various ensembles that he leads and as a showcase for his composing which can be heard on recordings like 'The Sherlock Holmes Suite and 'Songs For Unsung Heroes'

The label has steadily expanded to include recordings by many like-minded musicians, including instrumentalists from Europe and the U.S.A.

Since the labels' inception, interest in the recordings has grown rapidly around the world and we plan to release around 6 new CDs per year

As with the current catalogue we will remain diverse and record musicians in varied and interesting settings.

For information on upcoming projects and CDs, please check the regularly updated 'latest news' page.

You can also listen to samples of any of the CDs, download tracks from iTunes or purchase them directly from Woodville Records.
