The Verve Music Group
Verve Records was originally the product of the vision of [a=Norman Granz]. He formed Verve Records in 1956 and moved all of his recordings to the Verve catalog. In late 1960 Granz sold the label to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM), which sold its record labels to [l=Polydor] in 1972. That brought Verve into [l=PolyGram]'s international family of labels. With the merger of [l=PolyGram] with the [l=Universal Music Group], Verve Records became the hub of [b]The Verve Music Group[/b], which also encompasses the influential labels [i]GRP[/i], [i]Impulse![/i] and [i]Blue Thumb[/i] labels, and oversees the jazz catalogs of several other Universal-owned labels, including Commodore, Chess, Brunswick, Argo, Cadet, Dot, Coral, Decca, ABC-Paramount, A&M, Mercury, Philips and Polydor.
