CTI/A&M 3000 series discography

A&M started a new jazz division in 1967 that was headed by Creed Taylor. Releases carried a CTI logo in addition to the A&M logo. Taylor left A&M in 1970 and the CTI branding ceased. Jazz releases on the 3000 series continued, however, until the middle of the 1970s. A longer list including post-CTI releases in the series is available.

The first few releases in the series appeared in mono and stereo. The mono releases had a 2000 series number, the stereo releases had a 3000 series number. The majority of the series was released only in stereo. A number of planned releases in the series were not released until a later date in the 1980s - these have been omitted from the list.

When available the "See more details" link leads to a page with a track list and musicians information for the album.
