GNP Crescendo

Profile:
US label
Label Code: LC 0491 / LC 00491
The label was introduced approximately in 1954 as Gene Norman Presents, when Gene Norman was a concert arranger and owned the Crescendo night club in Los Angeles. Many releases were recorded there.
Soon the label design changed to GNP, underlined with Gene Norman Presents on white background.
In 1962 the label appearance changed to GNP Crescendo, red background, bold white letters on the top perimeter. Later the design changed to a horizontal wording on top.
In 1963 Norman sold his night club to concentrate on the label and the repertoire changed from just jazz to a wide range of popular music.
It is specialised in soundtracks from science fiction films and television series, but also remarkable for the release of The Seeds in the 60s.
