In the year that recorded jazz marks its centenary we invite you to contribute to the celebration of Scotland’s jazz heritage. Join us to discover some of the treasures of the pre-digital past, and to share your memories and experiences of the Scottish jazz scene.Drawing on existing audio, photographic and text materials collected by members of the Edinburgh Jazz Archive, the evening will feature presentations by Scottish jazz pioneers alongside short films, archival recordings, photography, live music and dance performances.
A NATIONAL JAZZ ARCHIVE FOR SCOTLAND
The event marks the launch of a Scotland-wide initiative for the establishment of a national jazz archive to preserve the recordings and documents that help tell the remarkable story of jazz in Scotland. The proposed archive will take the form of a centrally-hosted digital resource with open access to all, and encourage the participation of creators and fans from across Scotland's jazz community.
A collaborative event between Edinburgh Napier University and the Connecting Scotland’s Sounds project, championing Scotland’s heritage sound recordings with support from the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.
