Avatar Recording Studio's Harvey J. Rosen (president, COO) and Kirk Imamura (chairman, CEO) have formed 441 Records Corporation (www.441Records.com) within the studio's 441 West 53rd St., New York complex.

According to Rosen, “For years, Avatar's management was astonished that dozens of great, world-renowned jazz albums recorded at Avatar Studios were never made available for sale in the U.S. However, they did well in foreign markets. That said, 441 Records' initial mission is to market in the U.S. much of the jazz music recorded or mixed at Avatar. Our goal is to take the enormous care that goes into recording and extend it to the process of packaging, marketing and distribution.”

The first releases for the label include Joe Chambers and his trio's Urban Grooves, Waltz for Debbie by pianist Don Friedman and his trio, and Itacuruca by Brazilian jazz vocalist Pamela Driggs.
