A researcher in France is requesting info about Gene Russell and the Black Jazz label. He's been able to find a few articles in Billboard, one in the Jazz Record Digest, an entry in New Grove Dictionary of Jazz, and an obit for Russell in the LA Times. If anyone can offer more information on this topic, please let me know and I'll put you in contact with the researcher.
