Jazz reminiscence interviews now online

Participants in our jazz reminiscence interviewsExtracts from more than 20 interviews recorded during the Archive's HLF funded Intergenerational Jazz Reminiscence project can now be accessed on our website.

 

These five-minute recordings provide a vivid taster of the personal experiences of people involved with the development of jazz in Britain from the 1950s onwards, alongside informal interviews recorded during reminiscence workshops held in Age UK / Age Concern activity centres during the 18-month project, which concluded at the end of June.

 

Transcripts and fuller details will be made available over the coming months, but these extracts are a fascinating glimpse of the rich personal histories revealed during the project.
