Description:Contemporary Records was started by Lester Koenig in 1951. Based in Los Angeles, Contemporary was primarily known as a jazz label that concentrated on the "cool" west coast sound. Contemporary recorded such artists as Art Pepper, Shelly Manne, Hampton Hawes, Barney Kessel, Curtis Counce and Leroy Vinnegar. Koenig was known for extremely high audio standards. He hired Roy DuNann from Capitol Records in 1956, who, out of the label's shipping room turned studio, turned out some of the best sounding records of the 50's and 60's. Contemporary was purchased by Fantasy Records in 1984
