Jazzcraft discography

This is a discography of albums released on the Jazzcraft label between 1977 and 1979. Jazzcraft was founded in 1977 by the Danish record producer Lars Johansen with the aim of recording US musicians in the US. All Jazzcraft sessions were in New York. Jazzcraft was acquired by Storyville in 1981. All Jazzcraft LPs were later released on CD with bonus tracks from the original recording sessions. Some of the albums have been included on double CD releases that have the general title Jazzcraft Studio Recordings.
