Worcester Polytechnic Institute: WPI’s Jazz History Database Scores Archive of Internationally Acclaimed Jazz Trombonist

Worcester Polytechnic Institute: WPI’s Jazz History Database Scores Archive of Internationally Acclaimed Jazz Trombonist. “When assistant teaching professor Rich Falco invited two jazz experts to address his Jazz History Database class last year, little did he know it would lead to WPI’s acquiring the archive of a jazz heavyweight. In a major coup for the database that Falco founded, internationally acclaimed jazz trombonist Roswell Rudd’s massive archive of work—audio, video, and print—is being donated so that everyone will be able to hear the music of a man the New York Times called ‘a central figure in the avant-garde jazz scene of the 1960s and ’70s.'”
