      | On-Site Discographies | Wisconsin Music Site Map |
      | Wisconsin Artists/Groups by Genre, Location, etc. |
      | Wisconsin Jazz discography | Wisconsin Jazz Organizations / Web sites |

      This page lists links for current and past Wisconsin-based Jazz musicians.

      At this time every artist/group on this page appears on at least one released recording. Except for the artist names in bold, all recordings by the rest will be listed in my forthcoming book, (ca. 2028), FolkLib Index: Wisconsin Discography. However, I will be happy to also list links for all other Wisconsin-based Jazz performers, even if they have never recorded anything yet.

      artist name in bold = the recordings of these artists have already been completely listed and published in one or more books, so their titles will not be duplicated in my book. Jazz session players and band members who have individual biography/discography listings in books are listed here and not on the Session Players pages, even if they no known solo albums.

Please write if you know about any Wisconsin Jazz artist/group not listed, or if you have additional information about, or links for, a listed artist/group.
