The Institute of Jazz Studies (IJS) has been collecting jazz records at Rutgers University—Newark and sharing them with a wide audience for the past 50 years. These not only include sound recordings of jazz music, but also the “record” of jazz history found in photographs, documents, written music, and historic artifacts.
Expanding on the original vision of IJS founder Marshall Stearns, the Institute has grown to become one of the biggest centers in the world for the study of jazz history. Most importantly, the IJS preserves these valuable materials that document jazz history so that people can use them now and into the future. IJS users listen to recordings, study archival documents, read books about jazz, or look for a piece of music to play, to name a few common uses.
Records at Play: The Institute of Jazz Studies @50 is the first time the IJS has exhibited so many of its treasures at once. Although they represent only a small fraction of the Institute’s collections, the artifacts, documents, and sound recordings in this exhibit provide a record of IJS history and the music at its core.
