Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information


The Princeton University Jazz Ensemble Recordings contain primarily digitized audio recordings (raw and edited) of performances, web captures of the Ensemble's public wiki, and scant organizational records of the Ensemble from its inception in the mid-1990s to the early 1990s. Also included in the collection are digitized recordings dating back to the 1940s from other student jazz bands and individuals at Princeton, including Stan Rubin, Sons of Bix, Prospective Sound, and Princeton 8-Balls. These materials were collected, digitized, and assembled in the 2010s by alumni members of the Ensemble in an effort to preserve the legacy of jazz on the campus.

The organizational records of the Ensemble are PDF scans of concert photos, articles, posters, concert programs, rosters, tickets, advertisements, and correspondence. These records also contain audio and transcripts of interviews with alumni conducted in 2015 during Reunions.

Please note that dates associated with each folder reflect the dates that materials were digitized, not the date of the original record itself. Dates of original recordings can often be found embedded within the files themselves.
