Edinburgh Libraries are home to some very special, and unique, collections.
One of these is the Edinburgh Jazz Archive, which is kept at the Music department in Central Library.
As well as charting the rise of stars such as Sandy Brown, Al Fairweather, Archie Semple and Alex Welsh, the archive includes rare recordings and other memorabilia tracking the story of Edinburgh’s unique jazz scene over the last 60 years.
There may be other jazz enthusiasts out there who have material which would augment this collection. Do you, or does someone you know, have material relevant to the Edinburgh Jazz scene, which you’d be happy to donate? We’re looking for LPs, CDs, EPs or cassettes relating to Edinburgh Jazz. Photographs, DVDs and other memorabilia would also be welcome.
