- The history of Utah Jazz logo can be traced back to March 7, 1974 when New Orleans became the 18th member of NBA. At the time, Fred Rosenfeld and Sam Battistone paid $6.15 million for the franchise. Shortly after, a contest was held to name the team with eight semi-finalists emerged: Jazz, Dukes, Crescents, Pilots, Cajuns, Blues, Deltas, and Knights.
- On June 7, 1974 the team officials announced a new name would be New Orleans Jazz.
- With three contestants entered the Jazz name on the same date, the team had Miss New Orleans, Kay Johnson, to choose a winner out of a hopper. The winner was Steve Brown, a 27-year-old broker and transplant New Yorker. Brown, a self-proclaimed Jazz freak who had once played in a league with Julius Irving, said, I grew up on Knickerbocker basketball, but this is my team now." He received two Jazz season tickets and a trip to the 1975 NBA All-Star Game in Phoenix.

To convey a distinct Mardi Gras theme, purple gold, and green colors were used and the logo featured the 'J' as an eighth note. The team colors were actually selected prior to the name.
