Cuneiform Records sostiene l'iniziativa di sensibilizzazione all'ascolto del jazz anche nel mese di aprile, e invita i propri affezionati a guardare alle passate - e a quelle imminenti - pubblicazioni maggiormente attinenti al tema:

"April is Jazz Month - a special month devoted to celebrating the past, present and future of Jazz! The tradition began in 2002, when the Museum of American History in Washington DC launched Jazz Appreciation Month. In 2011, Unesco launched International Jazz Day.  And in 2012, the Jazz Journalists Association launched JazzApril, devoted to supporting both Jazz Appreciation Month and International Jazz Day (April 30).

The Cuneiform Records label is celebrating jazz this April by announcing upcoming Spring/Summer Jazz releases by four of the most innovative and important groups in contemporary jazz. On May 20, 2016, Cuneiform is honored to release Behind the Vibration by Rez Abbasi & Junction, and Convallaria by Thumbscrew (Mary Halvorson/Michael Formanek/Tomas Fujiwara); and on June 24th we're honored to release Super Petite by The Claudia Quintet, John Hollenbeck's group, and I Just Did Say Something by the Scandinavian group I.P.A.

Cuneiform is also celebrating jazz in April 2016 by inviting you to enjoy jazz by listening to our jazz releases. Cuneiform has an extensive back catalogue that includes new and archival jazz recordings by established icons (Michael Gibbs & the NDR BigBand, John Surman, Wadada Leo Smith & more) and fast rising stars (Pixel, Rob Mazurek, Empirical & many more). Cuneiform invites you to support jazz by purchasing the titles that you like, whether released on Cuneiform or other jazz labels. We also ask you to appreciate and support live jazz and the venues that host it, by attending jazz concerts in or near your home town."
