Record labels

* Blue Note Records
One of the best-known labels; the site offers a good deal of information, though it's a bit messy with a text-based browser (why do Web-page programs insist on telling you that there's a graphic? I'm using a text-based browser because I don't care).
* BMG Classics: Jazz
 
* Impulse!
