On September 21,  Concord Music, the massive music concern who own the catalogs of independent labels like Stax, Specialty, Fantasy, Rounder, Vanguard, Sugar Hill, Telarc and many other similar record companies, added another hallowed label to their vast holdings. Savoy Label Group, a hallowed name in postwar American jazz.  Savoy, like the others, has vast holdings of vintage material (over 3000 recordings) and has continued to release contemporary jazz and, on their 429 label, new recordings by classic rockers like Los Lobos, Robbie Robertson, Boz Scaggs and LL Cool J.
