<ul><li style="list-style-type:none">[[Image:Attention.png]] This set of pages is entirely deprecated, and all its content is progressively migrated into the database. [[Image:Attention.png]] 
 +
</ul>
  
==What is the purpose of this page?==
+
===A===
  
Help moderators (who do work documenting labels and catalogs informations) to quickly find:
+
* [[Jazz/Labels/Atlantic|Atlantic Records]]
* labels names and possibly official web site, wikipedia page and/or discographic work site about it
 
* labels periods of activity and relevant historical facts
 
* labels catalog number schemes (TODO)
 
* labels relations with other labels
 
* labels fusion / buy out
 
  
==Ultimate Goal==
+
===B===
  
Ultimately, I'm dreaming that label / catalog# become database entries (which is apparently scheduled), and that labels become entities (like artists) on which we could have both advanced relationships and annotation.
+
* [[Jazz/Labels/Blue Note|Blue Note]]
 +
* [[Jazz/Labels/Brunswick|Brunswick Records]]
 +
* [[Jazz/Labels/Bluesville|Bluesville]]
  
Meanwhile, this page wants to partly serve this purpose and be a time saver for these moderators who need it.
+
===E===
  
==Introductory Note==
+
* [[Jazz/Labels/Elektra Musician|Elektra/Musician]]
  
Jazz golden era is probably 45-70.
+
===J===
  
The 70s period ressort mainly to Free-Jazz (the kind of stuff only a few crazes like [[User:dmppanda|dmppanda]] listen to), while the pre 40s period, although very interesting, lacks recorded material (most of what's available being reissued in anthologies by specialized labels).
+
* [[Jazz/Labels/JAZZIZ|JAZZIZ]]  
  
There's of course a modern jazz, both by (quite old now) veterans, and by talented newcomers, but you better ask Yllona for that.
+
===M===
  
During a period (until 1990), labels buying other labels tend to simply reissue the bought catalogs under their own name (Fantasy reissues used the name Original Jazz Classics).
+
* [[Jazz/Labels/Moodsville|Moodsville]]
  
Recently though, now that all is left is 3 or 4 conglomerates which gobbled everything, 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.
+
===N===
  
==Refactoring (August 2006)==
 
 
This page is/will be an unmanageable bloat. I'm now creating one page per label, with more details:
 
* [[Jazz/Labels/Discovery|Discovery]]
 
* [[Jazz/Labels/Collectables|Collectables]]
 
* [[Jazz/Labels/Elektra Musician|Elektra/Musician]]
 
 
* [[Jazz/Labels/New Jazz|New Jazz]]  
 
* [[Jazz/Labels/New Jazz|New Jazz]]  
* [[Jazz/Labels/Prestige|Prestige]]
 
* [[Jazz/Labels/Swingville|Swingville]]
 
* [[Jazz/Labels/Bluesville|Bluesville]]
 
* [[Jazz/Labels/Moodsville|Moodsville]]
 
* [[Jazz/Labels/Atlantic|Atlantic Records]]
 
* [[Jazz/Labels/Decca|Decca Records]]
 
  
==Quick Find Me==
+
===P===
  
This section mention labels names, country of origin, historical period of activity, off-sites links, and mentions bootleg.
+
* [[Jazz/Labels/Pacific Jazz|Pacific Jazz (World Pacific Records grouped for now)]]
 +
* [[Jazz/Labels/Prestige|Prestige]]
  
===Major Labels===
+
===R===

==Detailed Data==
 
 
 
This section should be as detailed as possible, for each label. Possibly one table per label, the names from previous section serving as a TOC.
 
 
 
And I won't do it :p. Editing this page has just become too much wikipain for me. We need labels entries in MB :)
