Prestige

Prestige

Profile:
American jazz label.

Like several other prominent jazz producers of the Fifties, Bob Weinstock started out as a traditional jazz fan but soon found himself standing at the cutting edge of modern jazz. He launched his own label – originally called New Jazz, soon renamed Prestige – in 1949 and, during the next decade, recorded such giants as Gene Ammons, Sonny Stitt, Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Eric Dolphy, Thelonious Monk, the Modern Jazz Quartet and John Coltrane, often in informal "blowing" sessions.

Weinstock turned the reins over to other producers in 1958, and Prestige soon became the leading purveyor of what is now known as acid jazz with its recordings of Jack McDuff, Richard "Groove" Holmes, Charles Earland, and others.

Prestige, its sub labels and its publishing company, Prestige Music, Inc., became part of the Fantasy group of labels in June 1971, Weinstock remaining President. The Fantasy group merged with the Concord Music Group in 2004.

A concise guide to label variations of the 7000 cat.# series, as issued in the USA:

On first pressings from 7000 up to 7140, the 'fireworks' labels in yellow/black show the following address in the upper rim text, and are all mono pressings:
446 W. 50th ST., N.Y.C.

From 7141 up to (approximately) 7325, the fireworks labels in yellow/black for mono, and black/silver for stereo, show the following:
203 South Washington Ave., Bergenfield, N.J.

All mono 'fireworks' pressings have a caption on the right hand side of the spindle hole that can read any of the following:
"HI FI" / "HI FIDELITY" / "HIGH FIDELITY" / "High Fidelity".

From (approximately) 7326 up to the end of the series, the same address was used, but with a completely different design, known as the 'trident' label:
During 1964 and 1965 the logo appeared on the right hand side of the labels (both stereo and mono). After 1965 the logo moved to the 12 o'clock position.
