Timeless Records

Label history

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.

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.

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..
