Fillius Jazz Archive

#1 Post by Option » Sun Jan 07, 2018 9:40 am

I recently stumbled upon these interviews with numerous jazz musicians. The recordings were made for Hamilton College in New York. There are over 300 interviews, most done 20 or more years ago. So far I have listened to the videos of Milt Hinton, Marty Grosz, Joe Wilder, Ruth Brown, Buddy Tate, Frank Foster and Kenny Davern. They have all been fascinating. Lots of interesting comments about what makes a tune swing and what it's like to play for dancers. Although the interviews are not specifically about swing music, I think you might find them very informative.

Thanks for the video link. I like jazz very much I want to listen to live. But I rarely have time to listen.
