ArkivJazz.com Launches

Recommended Posts

I just received word from Naxos about the launch of ArkivJazz.com. It looks to have some really good titles.


Not sure if there are any exclusives to this store, but at least it's competition for the others.





EDIT: My mistake, it's physical media only, so it's not competition for the download sites.


Press Release:


Franklin, TN - Leading independent music distributor Naxos of America (NoA) has announced the launch of a new website, ArkivJazz.com, dedicated to the online sales of albums by Jazz artists. The new website launched on January 5, 2017 and will complement NoA's classical music-dedicated site, Arkivmusic.com, which debuted in 2006.

This new online store provides one-stop shopping for the Jazz fan worldwide -- offering CD and vinyl formats as well as Jazz-orientedDVD's. NoA is working with all labels - major and independent - to ensure product can be ordered and shipped immediately, to both US and international customers. ArkivJazz.com also features content exclusive to the website including interviews and editorial, a VIP subscription offering free U.S. shipping and member-only specials, and a complimentary subscription to Downbeat Magazine.


"This is just what the Jazz world needs," said multiple GRAMMY and Tony Award-winning vocalist Dee Dee Bridgewater, who is currently in the midst of recording her next CD at Royal Studios in Memphis. "Trying to find Jazz product in the marketplace for fans is becoming increasingly difficult for its very devoted audience and ArkivJazz.com will certainly fill that void. Kudos to Naxos for setting this up!"


Heading up ArkivJazz will be executives Jeff Van Driel and Jonathan Eby. Jeff Van Driel is the President of ArkivMusic, Inc.andSaid Jeff Van Driel, "Just as ArkivMusic has filled the need for an online dedicated classical music store which core fans and collectors love, ArkivJazz will fill the same need for jazz. Jazz aficionados have few places to find


Jonathan Eby, Chief Operating Officer of NoA, also heads up US physical retail operations for the Naxos Music Group.


CEO of NoA, and has worked in various roles for Naxos since 2007.CDs,DVDs and vinyl for this special genre - we expect ArkivJazz to exceed jazz fans' expectations worldwide."

Seriously, in 2017 somebody really launches a new CD store? Wow.


It feels a bit like being in 1917 and somebody is trying to sell you a horse for getting from a to b; as they claim the new "automotive" stuff is only a passing fad.
