From Harry Vetro:

Howard University Jazz Oral History Project

Beginning in the 1980s thru the 2000s, the Howard University Jazz Oral History Project was led by Retirerd Howard University Professor, Dr. Arthur Dawkins. The purpose of the project was to collect and preserve essential historical, biographical and cultural data related to the adevelopment of jazz through in-depth interviews with significant elder musicians, jazz artists in special circumstances (e.g. poor health), and lesser known but important musicians.


That’s all, have a great week guys!
