Strata-East Records is an American record label of jazz music, founded in 1971 by Stanley Cowell and Charles Tolliver.

Gil Scott-Heron recorded his 1974 album Winter in America with Brian Jackson for Strata-East. "The Bottle" featured on the album, was a popular single. This album stands as one of the label's most well-known recordings.

The label released over 60 albums in the 1970s, several by artists including Clifford Jordan, Pharoah Sanders, and Shirley Scott. Bill Lee, father of Spike Lee, was involved in numerous releases. Many of the label's releases, however obscure, are hailed as fine examples of 1970s Post-Bop, Spiritual Jazz, and Afro-Jazz.

On the Madlib album Yesterdays Universe, there is a tribute song to Strata-East, entitled "Two for Strata-East".
