SteepleChase Records

SteepleChase Records

SteepleChase Records is a jazz record label based out of Copenhagen, Denmark.

SteepleChase was founded in 1972 by Nils Winther, who was a student at Copenhagen University at the time. He began recording performances at Jazzhus Montmartre, where many American expatriates played, and was given permission by some of the artists to release the material on record. SteepleChase became a haven for many artists who had lost contracts with larger labels after the 1960s, particularly after the failure of Blue Note. Later in the 20th century it began releasing more material from younger artists.
