33 RPM was created by saxophonist / producer Paul Jolly in 1990 to develop a wider market for jazz and related music. Over almost 30 years '33' have, via the 33JAZZ, 33WM and more recently the 33Xtreme labels, released over 300 albums of contemporary jazz and world music.
A major feature of the label is to develop international collaborations between musicians from different stylistic backgrounds. Current releases include work from Tina May / Andy Lutter, The Marco Marconi Trio, Maciek Pysz / Gianluca Corona, Matt Dibble / Fabio Zambelli, KGQ, Benet McLean,
Justin Swadling / Piatti Quartet, Damon Brown and Matt Chandler. The back catalogue includes award winning releases from Tina May / Ray Bryant, Hans Koller / Steve Lacy, Nick Smart, Dick Heckstall- Smith and John Law’s Congregation.
