Associated Audiovisual Materials, 1967-2010, undated

210 items
Scope and content:

This series contains audiovisual materials collected during the research and oral history interview phases of the Jazz Loft Project, as well as excerpts, playlists, and compilations of audio and video put together for radio programs, podcasts, and the Jazz Loft website. Materials are generally related to individuals associated with the Jazz Loft, with jazz music in general, and with the New York art scene of the mid-20th century. Of particular note are original audio recordings made of Hall Overton's opera "Huckleberry Finn", which was performed at the Juilliard School in 1971, as well as other recordings of Overton given to the Jazz Loft Project by Hall Overton's widow, Nancy Overton. Other materials include copies of the recordings, made for transcription, that W. Eugene Smith made at the Jazz Loft; recordings of Jason Moran and the 2007-2009 interpretations of Thelonious Monk's Town Hall Concert; and commercial audio and video recordings. Original recordings are closed to use, although copies of recordings may be made available to researchers. Contact the Rubenstein Library for further information.
