Discovery Records was a United States-based record label known for its recordings of jazz music.

Discovery was founded in 1948 by jazz fan and promoter Albert Marx. Marx recorded such jazz notables as Dizzy Gillespie, Red Norvo, and Charlie Mingus for issue on his Discovery label, headquartered in Hollywood, California.

Marx acquired the back-catalogues of Musicraft Records and Trend Records and reissued them on Discovery through the 1980s. His estate sold the Discovery, Trend and Musicraft jazz labels in 1991 to Jac Holzman which he refashioned into a fully contemporary label. In 1993, Discovery Records was acquired by Warner Music Group and was absorbed by Sire Records in 1996.
