Verve Forecast (Verve’s folk and smooth-jazz subsidiary)
Initially created in 1967 as a folk music focused emanation of Verve Records, it quickly changed its name from Verve Folkways to Verve Forecast due to naming issues with other existing labels.
Going silent with the rest of Verve in the 70s, it was revived during the 90s to (re)issue smooth-jazz, then went silent again after the Seagram merge (its roster being transfered to GRP).
Revived again in 2004 to handle the Verve Music Group non jazz stuff, it inherited from Blue Thumb Records.
Late issues bear the typical VMG ASIN-look-alike catalog numbers, B000XXXX-YY where YY is the product type.
Previously known as: Verve Folkways
