Summit Records is an internationally distributed record label that evolved out of the dynamic large brass ensemble, Summit Brass in the late 1980s with the goal of providing quality, world-class musicians a platform to get their music to the public and be treated fairly in the process. That mission really has not changed. Although the marketplace has presented many new challenges, including hundreds of new record labels and alternative ways to get music to you, Summit Records remains committed to quality musicianship, treating artists with the respect they deserve, and providing the customer with a premium product – with “five-star” service of course.
Over the years some of our highlights have included and continue to include;
- The OrchestraPro Series, a series devoted to teaching the listener how the world’s best play orchestral excerpts. Principal players in major orchestras go “one on one” with the listener, unaccompanied, with commentary. A private lesson if you will.
- Top instrumentalists and some of the finest virtuosos in the world playing at the top of their careers. Many will literally “take your breath away”.
- The evolution of a jazz catalogue that is raising eyebrows and continuing to make waves with both fans and critics. Remember this name: SummitJazz.
- Rafael Mendez, one of thee, if not thee greatest trumpet player of all time – only on Summit Records.
- The advent of SummitKids, a line devoted to not only providing children with a fun listening environment, but an educational one.
- …the continued “eclecticism” of many of our recordings that has placed Summit in a sort of “risk taker” role…if the playing is world-class and the feeling is right, you’ll find it on Summit.
So, what next? We continue to be committed to putting out some of the very best music in the marketplace from the very best musicians – with top-notch service. Every title in the catalogue is available and in our warehouse right here in Arizona, and if you order from us, it’ll normally be shipped to you within a day of receiving your order…in other words, you’ll get it quickly.
