When the opportunity is there, we interview some of the jazz and music icons that step into our centre or appear at the live events we attend. View a selection of these interviews in the above video gallery.


We have both historic and contemporary interviews available to listen to within our research centre. This includes a complete collection of nearly 300 Sheila Tracy interviews (donated with usage rights to The Jazz Centre UK by Tracy's son Richard Arnatt) and more recent interviews from the 100 Club in London.

If you would like to listen to any of our audio collections simply ask one of our volunteers on arrival to the centre and they will be able to direct you to the touch screen tablets within our media centre.
