Timeless Records is a jazz record label from The Netherlands.

Timeless was founded in Wageningen in 1975 by Wim Wigt. It has specialized in bebop, though it also did a subseries of important releases of Dixieland and swing recordings. As of ca. 2000 the label had issued some 600 albums, and had two sublabels, World Wide Jazz and Limetree Records.[1]

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

The label also sponsored the Timeless All Stars, which was a six-piece ensemble founded by Wigt in 1981. The initial membership of the group was Harold Land, Curtis Fuller, Bobby Hutcherson, Cedar Walton, Buster Williams, and Billy Higgins.[2]

Notable released include Dizzy Gillespie Meets Phil Woods Quintet, McCoy Tyner's Bon Voyage, Lou Donaldson's Forgotten Man and albums by the George Adams-Don Pullen Quartet..
