Columbia 10-inch Album Discography, Part 9:
Jazz Series (GL 100 to GL 105) 1951-1952

By Randy Watts, Mike Callahan, David Edwards, and Patrice Eyries
Last update: April 16, 2009

This series was the 10" counterpart to the GL-500 series of 12" albums. It started as primarily a jazz series. This series only lasted for six albums, from GL-100 to GL-105. The GL-500 series, the 12-inch black-label counterparts, lasted to GL-525. At that time, Columbia opted to discontinue the GL-100 series in favor of incorporating the jazz releases into the main 10-inch CL-6000 series. Likewise, the GL- 500 series was changed to the red-label CL-500 series, which became the main series for Columbia's pop and jazz releases.
