Utah Jazz Logos History

Utah Jazz started in New Orleans in 1974. As the undisputed “jazz capital of the world”, the city embraced their basketball nickname. In 1979, ownership moved the the team to Salt Lake City, Utah. Despite no history of Jazz music in Utah, the team kept its name. The current Jazz logo is a modern take on the original classic logo with an emphasis on the Jazz wordmark and the name of the home state embedded above the nickname.
