by Paula Greer

Unbeknownst to most people, Motown had a jazz division in the early 1960s. Shown below is the entire output from the "Workshop Jazz" label. There were other releases planned, recorded, catalogue numbers allotted, and even cover slicks made that show up on inner sleeves and other advertisements, but the records were never released. The most famous unreleased album is what would have been the first Four Tops LP with them singing standards. Apparently Berry Gordy nixed it at the last minute. It has since come out on CD and is titled "Breaking Through." Click here to see the Workshop Jazz labels.
