Melodisc 78 rpm records (British modern jazz)...

Melodisc's known modern jazz records are detailed below. These issues were on 10inch 78rpm format although in 1954 they produced an EP. Only the British modern jazz releases are listed below, there are missing numbers - I do not know whether every number was used but I suspect not. Further details including band personnels are available by clicking on the links, just make a note of the date and titles and look them up in the discographies. If you have any additions or corrections I would very much appreciate the information. The date shown is the recording date...
