Karusell

Karusell

Profile:
Do NOT confuse with the German label Karussell (with two "S") and Label Code LC 00245.
Swedish pop and jazz label founded 1953 by Carl-Gustaf Niren and bandleader Simon Brehm. Important in introducing jazz in Scandinavia as licence releaser for Norman Granz's jazz labels in the 50's and 60's.
Label Code: LC 16986
Regional branches were opened in Denmark, Germany, and Norway before 1960.
Swedish office was purchased by Deutsche Grammophon in 1962.
Danish branch was merged into Tono in the late 60's.
In 1970, Swedish label name was changed to Polydor AB.

In 2014, only the German counterpart still exists but under a slightly different spelling Karussell.  They had used the same logo, with inversed colors, until 1980.
