Circle

Profile:
May also appear as "Circle Records"
US label launched in January 1946 by Rudi Blesh and Harriet Janis to release recordings of traditional jazz. Circle Records issued the first commercial releases drawn from Jelly Roll Morton's Library of Congress recordings. Blesh and Janis continued the label until late 1952.
It was purchased in the 1960s by GHB/Jazzology Records owner George H. Buck. Managed by Wendell Echols from Atlanta, GA, Jazzology currently use the label to release swing big band recordings.

Please note that many 78s have labels with a 1946 copyright date, including cases where the recording was made after 1946. Therefore, the copyright date cannot be taken as release date.
