When ABC Records sought to form a jazz subsidiary in 1960, Creed Taylor was recruited to oversee it all.
He called the company "Impulse!" (connoting the spontaneous feeling of jazz). Taylor jumped ship to accept a lucrative offer to run Verve Records, the jazz label Norman Granz sold to MGM Records in 1961.
In November 1967, Taylor arranged with A&M's Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss to begin his own organization,
CTI Records.  The label had 4 subsidiaries: Kudu, Salvation, Three Brothers and Greenstreet.
