Savoy Records

Savoy Records is an American record label specializing in jazz, black gospel, soul/R&B, and blues. Starting in the mid 1940s, Savoy played an important part in popularizing the jazz subgenre of bebop.

(An unrelated, now-defunct label also known as Savoy Records was based in Manchester, United Kingdom, and specialized primarily in rock music releases.)

As of 2012, the Savoy library is primarily controlled by Nippon Columbia, a Tokyo, Japan-based public company which purchased Savoy in 1991. Nippon Columbia's wholly owned subsidiary, Savoy Jazz, handles Savoy Records distribution in the United States.
