Discovery record by Red Norvo
|Parent company||Warner Music Group|
|Country of origin||U.S.|
Discovery was founded in 1948 by jazz fan and promoter Albert Marx. Marx recorded jazz notables such as Dizzy Gillespie, Red Norvo, Art Pepper and Charles Mingus for issue on his Discovery label headquartered in Hollywood, California.
Marx acquired the back-catalogues of Musicraft Records and Trend Records and reissued them on Discovery through the 1980s. His estate sold the Discovery, Trend and Musicraft jazz labels in 1991 to Jac Holzman, which he refashioned into a contemporary label. In 1993, Discovery Records was acquired by Warner Music Group and was absorbed by Sire Records in 1996.
