    - Wisconsin Jazz & Big Band Musicians Bibliography

(last updated .08-11-2016)     [Note: temporary working draft page with no public link. When it is ready for public view, it will be renamed and moved.]

      As the first page created in the Wisconsin Musician Bibliographical Indexing Project, this page lists every Jazz and Big Band name I have found listed in a book. Note that, as of 1-30-2008, there are only 58 names below, out of the 208 names listed on my Wisconsin Jazz Musicians page, and another 20 names on my Wisconsin Big Bands page. The rest have never been mentioned in a book before.

      "Book Code" = the permanently assigned code for each book listed on the Folk Music Bibliography page.

      "Total" = the number of Wisconsin Jazz and/or Big Band Musicians listed in this book

      "DB" = a Discography Bibliography has been started for this artist/group. Click on their name to see the list of album titles already found in the books listed below. The goal of the Wisconsin Musician Bibliographical Indexing Project is to list the exact page(s) where you can find every title by every listed artist/group that has been listed before in a book.
      Page number(s) in bold print indicate that every Album Title listed in this musician's book entry has been added to the list of   Wisconsin Jazz   or   Wisconsin Big Band   Discography Bibliography pages. Singles (78/45/CD) are beyond the scope of this project. With just a few exceptions,   the only singles documented on this Web site   are ones I actually own.
