The Babel Label is a record label was founded in 1994 by Oliver Weindling. It primarily records and releases jazz albums from UK artists. Ongoing relationships include artists such as Billy Jenkins, Christine Tobin and Huw Warren. A close relationship has been forged with a number of musicians from the F-IRE Collective, such as Tom Arthurs, Pete Wareham, Finn Peters and Seb Rochford. The label has been a major influence on a "revival" of interest in jazz in the UK over recent years. Currently this includes the successful crossover of some releases such as those of Polar Bear and Acoustic Ladyland into the pop world, and the work of the likes of Huw Warren using classical music by John Dowland and others. Another side of Babel's work is with Penny Rimbaud and Last Amendment such as his reworking of Howl (How?, released 2004). Many of the sleeves are designed by Gee Vaucher.

The label releases six albums a year. For 2007 these include Led Bib, Billy Jenkins, Tom Arthurs and Fraud. The label is also working with the Vortex Jazz Club on a joint venture, the first release of which is by Portico Quartet and which was nominated for the 2008 Mercury Music Prize.
