32 Records

32 Records was a record label established in 1995 by record producer Joel Dorn and attorney Robert Miller. Its 32 Jazz imprint released a successful series of compilation albums. The label was named for Dorn's favorite sports number. 32 Records also released new material by artists such as The Jazz Passengers and established 32 R&B, 32 Blues, 32 Groove, and 32 Pop subsidiaries.

32 Records acquired the holdings of the Muse and Landmark labels, and established the 32 Jazz subsidiary in 1997 with the aim of re-issuing numerous jazz recordings. During the late 1990s, 32 Jazz released a successful series of inexpensive “Jazz for…” compilations. The first of these, Jazz for a Rainy Afternoon, was released in 1997 in conjunction with Elle. In 1999, 32 Jazz had become the top jazz label in the Billboard charts, before Verve Music Group merged its Verve and GRP holdings into a single output.
