Key ReleasesEdit


A&M was started in 1960 by trumpter Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss, and became a major label, releasing records in many different genres, including the type of jazz favored by Alpert. In the 1970s and 1980s, A&M distributed for many labels, including Dark Horse and I.R.S.. It was bought by PolyGram, and later by Universal, who folded it into Interscope. In 2000, Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss sued Universal over the folding-in-with-Interscope, but the case was settled out of court.
