PACIFIC JAZZ / WORLD PACIFIC

6200 SERIES - JUKE BOX
© James A. Harrod, COPYRIGHT PROTECTED; ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.


AMI ran a regular series of ads in Down Beat magazine in 1955/1956 that featured prominent figures from the music industry including jazz and popular musicians, band leaders, vocalists, and vocal groups.

The Pacific Jazz 6200 series was among the last efforts of World Pacific to market their jazz line to the juke box industry.  There were four packages in the series, each using a letter prefix.  The A6200 series drew from several current PJ releases featuring the Curtis Amy-Frank Butler Sextet, Bud Shank & Carmell Jones, Les McCann Ltd., Carmell Jones & Harold Land, Richard “Groove” Holmes, and Teddy Edwards.  The B6200 series featured selections from Gerald Wilson’s YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT! album. The C6200 releases featured selections from Richard “Groove” Holmes & Gene Ammons GROOVIN’ WITH JUG album. The fourth package offered selections from Curtis Amy’s and Paul Bryant’s MEETIN’ HERE album.
