Indie Jazz Label, also Big Band , Italian-American artists, and Re-issue
CEXTON RECORDS was launched in 1984
by John Anello Jr JD.
After recording a master tape
original jazz songs, John was unable
to secure a record deal. So he launched
Cexton as a way to get his
"FOR A DANCER" released.
The LP was a huge success, received
and went on to
receive several awards.
Upon this success, John recorded his 2nd LP,
STREET BEAT", named after the
street he lived on as a child in Newark NJ.
"JACKSON STREET BEAT"
surpassed the sales
and airplay of "FOR A DANCER", and also
became a huge hit in Japan.
In 1988, John began to sign other artists
to the CEXTON label, and switched from the
LP format to CD. There
are now over 65 artists
on Cexton Records, and Cexton CDs are aired
and available throughout the world.
CEXTON RECORDS features many great new
and established artists. We have Jazz
and Big Band Swing, and also
re-issues of Italian-American Artists
on CD and cassette.
