Nessa Records is an American jazz record label founded in Chicago in 1967 by producer Chuck Nessa.

After working at Delmark Records for a year, Nessa started the label at the urging of Roscoe Mitchell and Lester Bowie. The first album was released under Bowie's name because Mitchell was under contract to Delmark.[1] Since the mid 80's the label has been based in Whitehall, Michigan.[2][3]
