Half Note Records is a jazz record label founded by the Blue Note Jazz Club in 1998. Although initially it only released live recordings from the club, the label has since expanded its scope to release studio albums as well.[1]

The label has garnered critical acclaim for many of its releases. Paquito D'Rivera's album Live at the Blue Note won a Latin Grammy Award for Best Latin Jazz Album in 2001.[2] Several other releases have received Grammy nominations, including Gil Goldstein's Under Rousseau's Moon; Conrad Herwig's The Latin Side of Wayne Shorter and Another Kind of Blue: The Latin Side of Miles Davis; and the Omar Sosa Sextet's Across the Divide: A Tale of Rhythm & Ancestry.[3] In addition, the label has released albums by Will Calhoun, James Carter, Avishai Cohen, the Dizzy Gillespie™ All-Star Big Band, Donald Harrison, Elvin Jones, John Medeski, Francisco Mela, Brian Lynch, Odean Pope, Arturo Sandoval, Omar Sosa, Mary Stallings, Grady Tate, Charles Tolliver, McCoy Tyner, Tony Vacca, Roseanna Vitro, Jeff "Tain" Watts, and Kenny Werner.
