Jackson Blues Trail marker unveiled Thursday
JACKSON – A Mississippi Blues Trail marker will be unveiled Thursday in downtown Jackson to honor was one of the first businesses to offer professional recording technology.
The marker will honor Scott Radio Service Company, which was used by Jackson-based Trumpet Record Label for its first sessions with blues artists from 1950 to 1952. The business closed in the 1970s.
The company focused on radio repair and service, and later on television as technology changed, but its association with Trumpet Records earned owner Ivan M. Scott a niche in blues history.
Although many recording studios were using tape in the early 1950’s, Scott recorded music on a disc cutting machine for the Trumpet sessions.
