LP3-45-Records is a Jazz record label created as a collaboration between three renown musicians, Luigi Grasso, Yaron Herman, Laurent Courthaliac, and a music lover entrepreneur, Peter Schnur.

Captured in their own personal living space or a dedicated studio, the artists have a rare opportunity of expression.
Each    album is a vintage and will be available in a limited edition vinyl and in digital format.

The first two records have been launched on December 18 2021.

During 2020, the label continued recording in New York at the famous big orange sheep studio, with international jazz stars. The recordings – Orange Hours – will be launched as downloads from April through September 2021 and as a double LP in November 2021.

We have recorded in the same studio the new rising piano star, MICAH THOMAS.
A double LP will be launched in vinyl and as download at the end of 2021.
