Liquid 8, Sidran plan to jazz up Nardis

Stubblefield disc first release for label

Liquid 8 Records has partnered with pianist-singer Ben Sidran to create Nardis Music, a new jazz and groove music label.

The first release will be a new CD by former James Brown drummer Clyde Stubblefield. At least 10 discs will be released next year. A new instrumental recording from Sidran is on the schedule.

Navarre Corp. will distribute Nardis Music.

Sidran created Go Jazz Records in 1990 and has released a half dozen of his own albums on the imprint; February’s “Walk Pretty” was the most recent. Nardis will be releasing budget-priced compilations from the Go Jazz catalog to complement each of the new releases. When Stubblefield’s “The Original” is released in December, for example, a collection of funk tracks will be issued simultaneously.

“These days, jazz covers a broad spectrum of styles and artists,” Sidran said. “We will feature artists’ new work while continuing to make classic material available.”

“Ben understands the current retail environment and will be a knowledgeable business partner,” Liquid 8 Records CEO Michael Catain said. “It’s an absolute pleasure to work with someone familiar with both the business and music arenas.”
