The Play Boy Jazz All- Stars Records(1)


Playboy is an American men’s lifestyle and entertainment magazine. It was founded in Chicago in 1953 by Hugh Hefner and his associates.

Downbeat and Metronome magazines had been read by fans of both swing and modern jazz.

But the general public did not recognized such specialty publications.

Playboy planned a great jazz record for readers.

In 1957 and 1958, the company produced Volumes I & II (two record sets) of its Playboy Jazz All-Star series.

Probably Hugh Hefner wanted to provide fan appreciation record for general public.
