The Utah Jazz Will Bring Back The Note Next Season

The new Jazz colors?
The new Jazz colors?

Fans have been clamoring for a return to the Jazz note of old for some time.   Now it looks like it's going to happen according to Ross Siler,

Jazz president Randy Rigby confirmed that the team has talked to the NBA about the possibility of returning to the music note logo worn through the team's history by everyone from Pete Maravich and Darrell Griffith to John Stockton and Karl Malone.
"We're looking at that," Rigby said, adding, "We've kept that mark so that we can look at maybe doing a redesign."

According to Siler, the Jazz would go with the old logo but use updated colors.  Instead of the gold, purple, and green, we would see blue, green, and gold.  If you're worried about that color combination you can rest a bit easy as it seems that Deron likes them,

As long as we don't go back to the ones with the mountains, I'm cool, the one that Jeff Hornacek has up in the rafters," Williams said, adding of the new uniforms: "They're really nice. I think people are going to like them. I like them."

I don't think we have to worry about the mountain uniforms.  I wasn't a fan of those at all, especially the alternate black one.  I know some aren't big fans of our current baby blue alternate.  I don't mind it.

I wonder if the yellow/green release this year was in a part a trial run to see how the old stuff would be received.  Fans can write or call all they want about wanting the old logo but when it comes down to it, money talks.  The Jazz weren't going to go through the expense of a redesign without knowing that they would sell.  The green/yellow jerseys have been a huge success.

Whatever the reason, it will be good to have the old note back.

Siler tells me that the new colors will be more of a metallic gold, kelly green, and the same blue.  I sure hope the kelly green translates better to fabric,
