The Fillius Jazz Archive holds a collection of 300+ video interviews with jazz musicians, arrangers, writers and critics. This Website provides the audio portion of the video, a full transcription of the audio, and a photo of the interviewee taken during the interview. To view the videos you must contact Monk Rowe, the director of the Fillius Jazz Archive. This ongoing oral history project began in 1995.


The interviews were conducted by either Monk Rowe or Professor Michael Woods, both of Hamilton College.
