Super-Sonic Jazz is a music and talent development platform from Amsterdam. Super-Sonic Jazz started in 2016 as a series of concerts and club nights in Paradiso to provide a stage for the new wave of contemporary jazz musicians emerging from the city. A little later an annual festival and the launch of its own independent record label Super-Sonic Jazz Records followed. With experimental programming that mixes traditional jazz with contemporary genres such as hip-hop, neo-soul, R&B and electronic music, Super-Sonic Jazz pushes the boundaries of what jazz culture means to listeners, enthusiasts and artists alike.
Super Sonic Family
A compilation album titled Super-Sonic Family Vol. 1 was released in 2019 by Super-Sonic Jazz Records. The record is a cross-section of the year’s most exciting Dutch artists and most adventurous tracks; artists such as Yannick Hiwat, Liquid Spirit and GreyHeads contributed to the album. Listen to the album via this link on Spotify.
This year, Super-Sonic Family Vol. 2 is set for release in November 2023. The album will come out on double vinyl and digitally via Bandcamp and Spotify. There is room for at least 12 tracks by emerging Dutch talent.

Super-Sonic Jazz does not look at genres: jazz is a broad concept. From electronic to spiritualambietech highlifapianojazz – you make the rules. As Wayne Shorter once said: “The word ‘JAZZ’ means to me, I DARE you! Let’s jump into the unknown!”
