Venus Records (5)

Profile:
Japanese jazz label.
An independent jazz label Venus Records was established by Tetsuo Hara in 1992.
Having worked as a record producer for RCA and Alfa Jazz, Mr. Hara fulfilled his long-time dream of establishing his own label by releasing a new recording of Pharoah Sanders, one of the musicians he respects most.

Mr. Hara also cares about sound quality. Although there is some controversy surrounding the "loudness" of CDs, his signature 24-bit mastering process, dubbed "Hyper Magnum Sound," produces very powerful sound with strong presence, which is adored by many audiophiles. Under the vision of the strong-willed producer, Venus Records has, after 15 years, become one of the most popular and respected jazz labels in Japan.

Hoping your comment is satire? But, if not...if you honestly believe sexuality and jazz are mutually exclusive, then you neither have familiarity with the history of this music nor how it developed. More importantly, having such puritanical values when it comes to the nude human form will forever inhibit your ability to appreciate art and beauty as a whole.

I dislike this label because they often use provocative images for their releases. This kind of sexual objectification is not acceptable for me. It is nothing but a vulgar way of sacrilege against jazz and art.

Using suggestive images to sell jazz is a foolish decision. And it’s an utter shame to have their releases in one’s collection.
