Jazz Course Leader Shares Enthusiasm for Jazz Books

The other day, we were chatting about the Whittaker Library's collection of books on jazz.  We have hundreds of them!  (Searching the word "jazz" as a keyword yields well over 400 books, and then there are the scores and recordings ...)

Tommy Smith, the leader of our Jazz BMus, asked us to produce a list of these books, and we're happy to share this with our blog-followers and performing jazz artists.

When you look at the homepage of this Alexander Street Press resource, you'll immediately recognise lots of jazz names.  Give it a go!
