What is this page?
A compendium containing informations about Jazz Labels.
What is its purpose?
Help moderators (who do work documenting labels and catalogs informations) to quickly find:
- labels names and possibly official web site and/or discographic work site about it
- labels periods of activity and relevant historical facts
- labels catalog number schemes
- labels relations with other labels
- labels fusion / buy out
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.
Meanwhile, this page wants to partly serve this purpose and be a time saver for these moderators who need it.
