Abstract Logix is a North Carolina-based record label specializing in jazz fusion, world and jam band music. To date, Abstract Logix has released over fifty titles from musicians spanning the globe.[1][2]


The company began as a music blog started by music enthusiast and computer programmer Souvik Dutta in 2002.[3] The blog began by making available a recording of a house concert featuring Shawn Lane, Jonas Hellborg, and Jeff Sipe. [4] From there, Dutta branched out into direct sales and merchandising, becoming the exclusive retailer for a 3-DVD set by fusion guitarist John McLaughlin entitled “This is the Way I Do It” and handling merchandising for McLaughlin’s tours, while continuing to write code for IBM.[3]

Abstract Logix’s first two releases were ‘’Lincoln Memorial’’ by Project Z (featuring Jimmy Herring, Greg Osby, Ricky Keller, and Jeff Sipe) in 2005 and Alex Machacek’s ‘’[Sic]’’ in 2006. Dutta’s relationship with John McLaughlin resulted in the guitarist’s Floating Point being released on the label in 2008. In 2010, Dutta described Abstract Logix’s roster as “...musical pioneers and visionaries, old and young. Our clients include Grammy winners and musical icons like John McLaughlin, as well as young and upcoming icons of tomorrow like Alex Machacek, Jimmy Herring, and Wayne Krantz, among others.”[5] Other notable musicians to record for Abstract Logix include Lenny White, Gary Husband, Anthony Jackson, Scott Kinsey, and Ranjit Barot. The Abstract Logix website also sells independent releases by a number of other fusion, world, and progressive artists.
