==Introductory Note==
 
 
Jazz golden era is probably 45-70.
 
 
The 70s period resort mainly to [[Jazz/Genres/Free Jazz|Free Jazz]], while the pre-40s period, although very interesting, somewhat lacks recorded material (most of what's available being reissued in anthologies by specialized labels).
 
 
There's of course a modern jazz, both by (quite old now) veterans, and by talented newcomers, but this is [[Yllona Richardson]]'s territories - so she might talk about that better than me.
 
 
During a period (I would say until the 90s), labels buying other labels tend to reissue the bought catalogs under their own name ([[Jazz/Labels/Fantasy|Fantasy]] reissues used the name [[Jazz/Labels/Original Jazz Classics|Original Jazz Classics]]).
 
 
Recently though, now that all is left is "the 4 big ones" (Universal's [[Jazz/Labels/Verve Music Group|Verve Music Group]], the [[Jazz/Labels/EMI Group|EMI Group]], the [[Jazz/Labels/Warner Music Group|Warner Music Group]], [[Jazz/Labels/Sony BMG|Sony BMG]]), and the little one ([[Jazz/Labels/Concord Music Group|Concord Music Group]]), such holdings tend to reissue stuff under the original label name, or even produce new stuff under that name, which of course are not to be confused with the "historical" labels/periods.

For a time, I used to push all label data on one page, which has quickly proved unmanageable. Below are the remains of this attempt, waiting to be properly migrated in the new one-label/one-page architecture.
