Jazz from Rant is an independent music label created by a musicians' collective of jazz artists, improvisors and composers. Our recordings document musical projects and groups that range from wild improvised music and orchestral madness to swinging song for kids, tearful torch songs and thought-provoking poetry.
- Meditation on Grace, Michel Lambert/Rakalam Bob Moses, released with FMR Records, documents the meeting, playing, painting of these two drum masters.
