Pacific Jazz Records

Profile:
Copyright holder.
Also appears as "Pacific Jazz" only. Was used for some time simultaneously as label & as copyright holder.
Los Angeles based record label founded by Richard Bock and Roy Harte in 1952. Best known for releasing cool jazz and West Coast jazz.
In the meantime the label name changed to "World Pacific Records" and later to World Pacific in fall 1957. This label lasted till 1970, when it was folded.
The labels were purchased by Liberty Records, Inc. in May 1965, but stay autonomous for some more time. Just the advertisement and production was merged. Liberty was acquired by Transamerica Corporation in the summer of 1968, so the parent company becomes Liberty/U.A. INC. (appeared approximately spring 1969 on the releases), till the Liberty label was folded in 1971. There are several more companies involved then, till it has fallen under ownership of EMI Group. Please try to document the companies.
Today Pacific Jazz Records exists in-name only via reissues of its material; the label's jazz catalog is now controlled by Blue Note.

For the companies, see:
-Pacific Jazz Record Co. (1952-1954)
-Pacific Jazz Records, Inc. (1954)
-Pacific Jazz Enterprises, Inc. (1954-1957)
-World-Pacific Records (1960-1963)
-World-Pacific Inc. (1963-1964)
