So, we have three entities representing the Verve “jazzclub”:
A label, this has more entries against it: Jazz Club - MusicBrainz
A series, this has fewer entries against it, but it also has the sub-series entered against it, these are ‘jazzclub | originals’ &c.: jazzclub - MusicBrainz
A second series, this is a release group series rather than a release series as above: Jazzclub - MusicBrainz
I decided to make a forum topic as it isn’t wholly clear to me what should be done about this.
To my mind this should clearly be a series. All of the CDs which I’ve seen have a label specified against them, e.g. EmArcy, and then they have the jazzclub logo, and usually a sub-series like jazzclub|originals.
Currently, the jazzclub label entity on Musicbrainz has label code LC 00383, but this is just the Verve label code, so I don’t think that’s good evidence in favour of a separate label.
So, the strategy which I would probably employ would be, add a series relationship for every entity listed under the label (to the release-level series) and then merge the JazzClub label into a label. I’m not sure which one to merge it into, though. Probably Verve or Universal, but it’s not clear to me who actually runs the jazzclub.
As regards to the release group-level series, I think that must be wrong. For instance, this release group is entered against it: Release group “Electric Jazz Lounge” by Various Artists - MusicBrainz. However, there are releases listed on the Discogs page which do not appear to be in the jazzclub series, e.g. one in Japan.
So, I was wondering if I could get some feedback about this proposal to merge it into the parent label.
