Oral Histories, 1991-2010

614 items
Scope and content:

This series contains oral history transcripts in printed and electronic form, along with audio and video recordings of oral history interviews completed as part of the Jazz Loft Project. Many interviewees either visited or lived in the Jazz Loft building--e.g. David X. Young, Nancy Overton, Ron Free, Carole Thomas, and James Stephenson. Other interviewees were family members, musicians or artists in the New York city cultural scene, or scholars with pertinent information and stories that related to the Jazz Loft building--e.g. Whitney Balliett (jazz critic for the New Yorker), Robin D. G. Kelley (Thelonious Monk biographer), and the children of W. Eugene Smith. The original oral history recordings are closed to use, but digital access copies are available.
