Which Way Music is an Australian based record label founded in 2005 with a focus on jazz, classical and contemporary music. The principal objective of the label is to produce and promote new musical work by a growing family of artists. All are critically acclaimed performers who bring their musical and compositional skills to the recording studio in a variety of settings – from the sublime partnership between Tunisian oud player Dhafer Youssef and Austrian guitarist Wolfgang Muthspiel, to the stylistically indefinable compositions and improvisations of classical guitar masters Slava and Leonard Grigoryan.
A reflection of the label’s success in nurturing and developing a diverse catalogue is the formation, recording and subsequent international acclaim of guitar trio MGT, featuring US jazz great Ralph Towner. Driven by an artistic ideal rather than commercial imperative, Which Way Music fills a gap in the Australian marketplace for the discerning listener.
