Both national jazz history research center and extensive library, the Jazz Research Center is preserving, researching, making accessible, and spreading the word about the history of Jazz music in Russia. Thousands of books, records (CDs, LPs, 78s, cassettes, reel-to-reel tapes, including hundreds of hours of unissued material,) magazines, and movies – all of it forms the Center’s library at the Yaroslavl City Jazz Center, which is accessible for professional visitors, researchers, and scholars by appointment. Current acquisition of several major private jazz collections from musicians, producers, jazz activists, and jazz researchers, which include photos, correspondence, memorabilia, scrapbooks, media clipping etc., laid the foundation for an extensive collection of materials on Russian jazz history, documented as far back as 1922.
