The Utah Jazz are retiring the mountaintop logo that has donned their uniforms for the last decade. Since 1996 the only elements of the Utah Jazz logo and uniform that have changed were the colors. Now, the times they are a changing.
This week the Utah Jazz unveiled a new logo, jersey and court that will be used in the 2016-17 season. The primary colors are still navy blue, green and yellow but now the logo features a large J-note with Utah atop the two Zs. The mountaintop is gone.
It is a throwback to an older design before the Utah mountains were incorporated to make the team feel more at home in Utah. Don't forget, the Jazz originally came from Louisiana (you thought maybe Utah had a raging jazz scene?).
