Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Herbert C. Abramson (November 16, 1916 - November 9, 1999) was an American record company executive and producer. He was born in 1916 in Brooklyn, New York City and initially studied to be a dentist but he landed a job with National Records producing such performers as The Ravens, Billy Eckstine and Joe Turner. Abramson founded his first record company, Jubilee Records, in 1946 with Jerry Blaine. Abramson aspired to record jazz, R&B and Gospel recordings. Though Blaine was having some success recording Jewish novelty records, this genre did not interest Abramson, so he sold his interest in Jubilee to Blaine.show more
