“Say it with Music” by the National Jazz Archive

5th – 28th May 2017

The Forum Space

This Heritage Lottery Funded project celebrates the people and places that have shaped jazz music across the UK and explores how different generations have promoted, performed, supported, and documented our jazz heritage.

Visitors will learn about and reflect on the investment that people of different ages and backgrounds have made in musical heritage. The exhibition will enable them to enjoy and explore the collections that the National Jazz Archive holds and appreciate their cultural and historical significance.

Listening to the interviews and memories that have been recorded throughout the project will enable visitors to relate their own experience of discovering music, especially in their early years, and to appreciate the investments that older generations made in our jazz heritage.  |  FB: @nationaljazzarchive   |  Twitter: @jazzarchive
