Firehouse 12 Records documents the work of creative musicians active in a particular place and time.  Firehouse 12 is a performance space and recording studio located in New Haven, Connecticut.  Owner and chief engineer Nick Lloyd began the Firehouse 12 imprint along with acclaimed cornetist and composer Taylor Ho Bynum to document the music of some of America’s leading practitioners in the jazz and creative music idioms.

The label has quickly become a major force in jazz, presenting the first records led by young stars such as Peter Evans, Tyshawn Sorey, and Mary Halvorson as well as documenting recent major works of creative improvised music legends such as Anthony Braxton and Bill Dixon. 

Almost all of the recordings have been impeccably documented in the Firehouse 12 studio during live concerts or studio sessions.  The attention to detail in the recording process is quickly becoming a trademark of this series, as is the freshness of the music made by its label roster.
