A guide to library resources for jazz performers and researchers

Finding UO Recital Recordings

Looking for recordings of degree recitals by UO students?  Use the Advanced Search interface in LibrarySearch, and search the name of the performer (if you know it), or try the phrase "University of Oregon degree recitals" in the title field to see all recordings.

CDs of UO recital recordings from the past five years are available for checkout in the Douglass Room on the 3rd floor of Knight Library.  Recordings older than five years are archived in Special Collections and University Archives on the 2nd floor of Knight Library.

Finding Recordings of Jazz Music

Finding Recordings at UO

To find recordings of flute music, use the Advanced Search interface in LibrarySearch.  Search the name of the performer or composer as author/creator, select "Audio & Video" as the material type, and select "UO Libraries" or "Music Collection" as the search scope.

 

You can also search for the title of the composition.  If the composition has an opus number or other type of composer number (such as BWV for Bach or K. for Mozart), search for that as the title-- this is particularly useful for searching for works with genre- or form-based titles such as concertos and sonatas, where you might get a lot of results for things you don't want if you just search the composer and title alone.

 

Streaming Audio Databases

The UO Libraries subscribe to many streaming audio databases that let you listen, read liner notes, make playlists, and even clip excerpts to embed.  See the Audio tab in the main Music Research Guide for a full list of our streaming audio databases; below are several audio databases relevant to jazz:
