Atlantic Recording Corporation or Atlantic Records is an American record brand, and a division of Warner Music Group. It was established in 1947 by Herb Abramson and Ahmet Ertegun. Since it’s foundation, Atlantic was first and foremost an R&B and jazz record brand. In the beginning of the 50's Ahmet was united by Nesuhi Ertegun and then Jerry Wexler. From 1955 Nesuhi guided the corporation's jazz section and was in charge for most important projects for example John Coltrane and Charles Mingus; soon after Joel Dorn occupied this position. Even though it starts as a self-governing record corporation, it became a foremost player in the music industry in the 1960s, with normal pop musicians such as Sonny and  Cher.
