The Folk­ways col­lec­tion is pri­mar­i­ly regard­ed as a repos­i­to­ry of folk music, but Moses Asch’s appetite was eclec­tic if noth­ing else, and he was an ear­ly recorder of jazz music. A num­ber of notable jazz record­ings found their way into the col­lec­tion. This Pro­gram explores the con­nec­tions of a num­ber of jazz greats, such as James P. John­son and Mary Lou Williams, to the Folk­ways collection.
