Balance Point Acoustics

The balance point acoustics is a record label and presenting organization focused on documenting the music of double bassist Damon Smith (unfortunately, freejazzeconomics prevents this scope from widening!) in a variety of live and recorded settings. We are also distributing Tony Bevan's foghorn label on a small level. We started in June 2001 and now have a catalog of 10 + cds featuring transatlantic collaborations between U.S. and European improvisers. All releases have liner notes written by bass players and feature fine art on the covers, as well as graphic desgin by alan anzalone and carol genetti
