Short description:

Recordings in this collection are available for Higher and Further Education institutions only.

An informal and anecdotal history of the music, venues and people that defined jazz in the UK.

Oral history recordings provide valuable first-hand testimony of the past.  The views and opinions expressed in oral history interviews are those of the interviewees, who describe events from their own perspective.  The interviews are historical documents and their language, tone and content might in some cases reflect attitudes that could cause offence in today’s society.
