Aladdin Records was a record company and label founded in Los Angeles in 1945[1] by brothers Eddie and Leo Mesner. It was called Philo Records before changing its name in 1946.[2]

Aladdin was known for jazz, rhythm and blues,[2] and rock music. Some of these were issued on the company's short-lived Jazz West imprint.[3] Aladdin Records launched several subsidiary labels such as Score (1948), Intro (1950), 7-11 (1952), Ultra (1955), Jazz West (1955), and Lamp (1956). In addition to Los Angeles, many Aladdin recordings were produced by Cosimo Matassa in New Orleans.

Aladdin's first album was by Lester Young. Other musicians on the roster included Ernie Andrews, Charles Brown, Thurston Harris, Maxwell Davis, Al Hibbler, Billie Holiday, Lynn Hope, Jimmy Liggins, Lightnin' Hopkins,[4] Red Nelson ("Mother Fuyer"),[5] and Illinois Jacquet. In 1961, Aladdin was sold to Imperial Records, which was acquired by Liberty Records. Capitol bought Liberty in 1969, and reissues appeared on Blue Note Records.[2]
