(Est. 1973) Jazz At The Philharmonic founder Norman Granz so missed the recording aspect of the music business, which he'd abandoned in 1962 when he sold his Clef, Norgran, and Verve labels to MGM, that 10 years later he decided to take the plunge and start up yet another label. The veteran producer (then based in Beverly Hills) launched Pablo Records in 1973 and quickly built a world-class jazz catalog of albums by Ella Fitzgerald, Joe Pass, and Oscar Peterson - all of whom Granz managed - as well as Count Basie, Benny Carter, John Coltrane, Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Milt Jackson, Art Tatum, Sarah Vaughan, and many others. After releasing over 350 albums, Granz sold Pablo to Fantasy, Inc. in 1987. The label has remained active, mining the tape vault for unissued treasures and producing new sessions by guitarists Ron Affif and John Pisano, among others.
