Issie established Fuzzy Moon Records in June 2008, to promote her music and the music of her long standing colleagues from the international jazz scene. The following year Issie joined forces with IT specialist Paul Milnes to set up Fuzzy Moon Music – a publishing website designed to promote and sell all Fuzzy Moon Records’ artists’ scores and parts.
The first album released by Fuzzy Moon Records was Issie’s highly acclaimed debut album, Astral Pleasures (FUZ001), released in August 2008 and featuring all original music written for a bespoke 20-piece ensemble, with soloists James Allsopp, Anders Bergcrantz, Mark Lockheart, Mike Outram, Liam Noble, Rowland Sutherland and Steve Waterman (All scores and parts are available from Fuzzy Moon Music).
Then came composer and arranger John Warren‘s N/octet album
Finally Beginning (FUZ002) released in September 2008, performed by Gerard Presencer, Mark Nightingale, Christian Brewer, Stan Sulzmann, Julian Siegel, Jim Hart, Gwilym Simcock, Phil Donkin, James Maddren and Martin Shaw (All scores and parts are available from Fuzzy Moon Music).
Since then the label has gone from strength to strength, releasing a further five highly acclaimed albums:
Issie Barratt’s Meinrad Iten Suite (FUZ006): featuring the Meinrad Iten Quartet with Issie Barratt, Rowland Sutherland, Mick Foster and Mark Donlon. Released October 2011 (All scores and parts are available from Fuzzy Moon Music).
