Passport Audio

~ Label


A US budget reissues company.
Catalog should have around one hundred titles.
Is distributed by Koch in the US, and through Sony/BMG for Australia.
One of their collection prominently features an imprint-look-alike named "Just Jazz" - and a lot of sites report their release as from that - other sites report the distributor - Koch - and others as well give "Black Label".
This last moniker is not really clear - it may refer to a previous label having issued the same releases.

Note some cat # are apparently unused (or their website don't list them), and that some releases in the Just Jazz serie were either previously unreleased, or available only as bootlegs - the current status of some of them is quite questionable AFAIK.

Also worth noting they have a quite big Christmas stuff serie.

We probably have 2/3 of their entire catalog right now. The remainder containing a few infamous (as in: impossible to document) Christmas releases, a few compilations, and a couple Just Jazz.
