Featured E-Resource: The Jazz Discography

The Jazz Discography (Tom Lord) is now available through the Libraries. It is “… the most up-to-date general discography of all categories of recorded jazz, from 1896 to today”.

This resource allows much more flexible searching than was possible using the earlier print and CD-ROM versions. Searches are available for leader, session, musician, tune, and record label, as well as a “multi-search” function which allows searches of multiple musicians and/or tunes. A good introduction to using the database is found by clicking on the “Help” tab on the upper right of the screen.

The Jazz Discography can be found under the “Databases” tab of the main Library Web search page. Access is available on campus, or off-campus to Columbia affiliates via your standard UNI/password login.
