Prestige Records is one most revered Jazz labels in the world with countless all-time Jazz classics recorded on the imprint. Like several other prominent Jazz producers of the fifties, Prestige founder Bob Weinstock started out as a traditional Jazz fan but soon found himself standing at the cutting edge of "Modern Jazz." Weinstock launched his own label–originally called New Jazz, soon renamed Prestige – in 1949 and, during the next decade, recorded such giants as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins, Eric Dolphy, and the Modern Jazz Quartet, often in informal "blowing" sessions. By the late fifties Prestige had become the leading purveyor of Soul Jazz (also known as Acid Jazz) with its recordings of Jack McDuff, Richard "Groove" Holmes, Charles Earland, and others.
