City Slang: Strata Records digitally archived



Legendary Detroit label Strata Records is being honored at the Scion iQ Project Museum, an online archive of creative culture.

“The Strata Records exhibit takes us on a tour of the Detroit art gallery, music venue and record label started by trumpeter Charles Moore and pianist Kenny Cox in the late 1960s. Motown had already relocated to Los Angeles, but back in Detroit, something heady, funky and downright revolutionary was brewing. That “something” was Strata, a magnetic center for the Detroit jazz scene as well as a destination for heavyweight musicians like Charles Mingus, Ornette Coleman, Elvin Jones, and Herbie Hancock when they came through town.”


The Strata exhibit includes entries by John Sinclair and Stanley Cowell, as well as a Stratamedia Newsletter. The iQ Project Museum will be formatted for both computers and mobile devices. New content will be added as the iQ Project Museum evolves.
