Milestone Records

Milestone Records

Profile:
As at his earlier company, Riverside Records, producer Orrin Keepnews had little trouble attracting top-flight jazz artists to his Milestone label. Within a few years of its 1966 founding, Sonny Rollins, Joe Henderson, Gary Bartz and McCoy Tyner all joined the Milestone family. In 1970, Milestone Records became a division of Audiofidelity Enterprises (see Audiofidelity Enterprises, Inc.) with Keepnews remaining as head of the label. Keepnews and Milestone moved from New York to Berkeley in 1972 to become a part of Fantasy, Inc., where he soon launched the successful solo recording career of Brazilian vocalist Flora Purim and worked with a wide array of artists in his capacity as Director of Jazz A&R. Although Keepnews departed the company in the early Eighties, Milestone remains an active label with a roster that includes, Arturo O'Farrill, Manny Oquendo and Libre, Joe Locke, Jimmy McGriff, Hank Crawford, George Mraz and Sonny Rollins.
