Limelight

Limelight

Profile:
A Mercury subsidiary, inaugurated to commission jazz works by well-known artists, such as Dizzy Gillespie, Oscar Peterson, Art Blakey, Milt Jackson, etc. Also including the Limelight Series statement on some covers & labels on European releases.

The label also set new standards in packaging, expanding the concept of the traditional record cover with hitherto unseen constructions, many of these designed by Daniel Czubak (releases 86001-86046).

The policy changed abruptly to electronic and avant-garde music from LS 86047 onward. This was also expressed by a change in label design (see scans). The last few releases tried to incorporate rock within the electronics strategy, at times producing some erratic results.
