Xanadu recorded more than 100 releases.

Don Schlitten purchased the recording of minor labels and individual recordings.
He was newly reissued many historic performances such as Bud Powell, Coleman Hawkins, Earl Hines, Roy Eldridge, Jack Teagarden, Art Tatum and many more.
The label’s “Silver Series” focused on new recordings by such as Barry Harris, Al Cohn, Jimmy Raney, Dolo Coker, Charles McPherson and others.
