We have two main catalogs of important music, and we aim to make licensing from us easy and painless! Read on to learn more about licensing from JSP.
Our catalog of original recordings has been painstakingly assembled over the last 40 years. Recordings have been made in the U.S.A. and England (with Greece and Belgium along the way too). We have the finest in authentic blues from Chicago, Texas, and California, with some of the greatest names having made exclusive albums that we control for the world. Buddy Guy, Jimmy Witherspoon, Professor Longhair, Roy Gaines, and Jimmy Rogers are just a few examples. The greatest of the newer blues generation also came to JSP—Joe Louis Walker, Larry Garner, and Lucky Peterson, for instance. There is jazz from legends like Illinois Jacquet and Jay McShann, Cajun and Zydeco from Louisiana, Greek mountain music, and modern soul/blues from acts like Deitra Farr, Johnny Rawls, and Tamara Tramell. Many of our original recordings have the publishing associated with us, so 'one-stop' sync deals for film and TV media are possible.
We are also world-renowned for our catalog of classic 'vintage' recordings. We pioneered the 'cleaning up' of old recordings utilizing the best remastering engineers, including the great pioneer, John R.T. Davies. This ensures that we have tracks available that are 'accessible' and 'listenable' for use by modern media and are acceptable to modern mainstream audiences and listeners.
Our material has been used in many films, from Hollywood blockbusters to low-budget indie productions, as well as TV, adverts, online media, and computer games.
Tracks are also available for CD compilations. A wide variety of international labels have used our recordings.
