About the same time that London started the green-label 10-inch "Origins of Jazz" series, the started
a red-label 10-inch "American Jazz" series using the LZ-x 14000 series (where "x" was a letter
designating source label). The American Jazz Recording series started in 1954 and was overtaken in
1956 by the 15000 12-inch "American Jazz Recording" series.
Most of the albums in this series came from either Bethlehem (N) or Savoy/DeeGee (C). Later issues were from Tampa or Liberty, both of which were designated by the letter "U."
|The label for the LZ 14000 series was dark red with a silver field at the top of the label. Below the London name was a ribbon which read, "American Jazz Recording".|
