Muse Records
Genre Jazz
Country of origin United States

Muse Records was an American record label active circa 1972 to 1996 which released jazz and blues music.

Muse was founded in the early 1970s by Joe Fields, who had previously worked as an executive for Prestige Records in the 1960s.[1] Several of the albums were previously released on Cobblestone Records. Muse also had another label, Onyx Records, which operated until 1978, when Fields and collaborator Don Schlitten ended their professional relationship.[2]

In the late 1970s, Muse partnered with the Dutch Timeless Records to distribute Timeless Muse.

Muse was sold in 1996 to 32 Jazz, which repackaged and reissued a large amount of Muse recordings.[3][4][5][6] In 2003, Savoy Jazz (which had become a subsidiary of Nippon Columbia) acquired the rights to the Muse catalog (along with that of Landmark) from 32 Jazz.[7]

Fields later founded HighNote Records and Savant Records; many Muse artists later recorded for these labels as well.
