Jewel 1

Jewel (U.S.A.) / c. 1946

back next

Design: Strong label name lettering and a bold music note, but nothing to suggest a jewel.

History: Thanks for updated info to jazzologist and collector Dave Dixon of Canada, who writes: "The Jewel record label lasted about two years, from 1945-1947, and was produced by veteran musician Ben Pollack. The label was bought in 1947 by Savoy Records, mainly because of the avant-garde Boyd Raeburn recordings, and reissued on that label."
