Initially based on the collections of Terry McGrath and Norman Field, further additions are welcomed to better cover this creative local scene. There’s a link to the names showing instruments played. We hope this website blossoms into a pictorial local Traditional Jazz history.

We will gladly remove any photos that may infringe copyright. In addition we encourage the appearance of more websites to cover other styles of jazz in the area.

To get started, just click ‘Recent Additions’, or ‘Main Pages’ tab.
