Foundation date of this label is somewhat obscure. While the official site mentions 1969, there are hints about 1972, as an off shoot of Concord's Jazz Festival.
Created by Carl Jefferson, Concord Records had very tight relations with Concord Jazz (the limit between the twos never been clear, and eventually both names were used).
In 2004, following a buy-out (1999) and a merge with Fantasy, the company eventually became the Concord Music Group.
Now, both Concord Records and Concord Jazz exist as subsidiaries under this umbrella, along with a number of other jazz labels.
Concord Records had a few subsidiaries, including Concord Picante and Concord Concerto.
