provocateur | colin towns
Provocateur Records is an independent jazz label that specialises in diverse and thoroughly contemporary improvised music.
Formed in 1996, the label continues to grow and produce some of the finest jazz albums to be heard in Europe. The releases are of the best possible quality, both technically and creatively from artists such as Andy Sheppard, Guy Barker, Mike Gibbs, Annie Whitehead, Julian Arguelles, John Parricelli, Marcio Doctor, Alan Skidmore’s Ubizo, Maria Pia De Vito and Colin Towns Mask Orchestra.
Provocateur has become one of Europe’s most sophisticated independents, specialising in the fascinating border territories at the edges of contemporary jazz.’ (THE GUARDIAN)
