RIPM Jazz Periodicals


A full-text, cover-to-cover collection of over 100  jazz journals and magazines published in the United States from 1914 to 2000 overseen by the Répertoire international de la Press Musicale (RIPM). The largely rare American periodicals in this resource explore the genre’s roots in blues, ragtime, and Dixieland, continuing on through the swing and big band era of the 1930s and 40s, to the birth and development of bebop, West Coast jazz, cool jazz, and free jazz.
