WOR and WMGM studios were used for many jazz recording sessions in the late 40's and very early
50's. Blue Note used WOR a lot and several others used WMGM. Most or all of those Blue Note
Thelonious Monk solo sides were done at WOR and Miles Davis "The Birth of the Cool" sessions were
done at WMGM.
