Delmark Records discography: 400/500 series

This is a discography of 400/500 series of jazz albums released by Delmark from the late 1950's onward. This series is documented here over two pages. This second page lists the 500 series albums.

Delmark was founded, as Delmar, in 1953 by Robert G Koester. The name change to Delmark coincided with relocation to Chicago in 1958. Many blues albums were also released by Delmark but these fall outside the scope of this site.
