Volume 9 (2017)

The first article for Volume 9 is a memorial tribute to the late Ed Berger, former associate director of the Rutgers Institute of Jazz Studies, biographer, discographer, photographer, and more, who died January 22, 2017. Nine friends and colleagues from the world of jazz research present their recollections and appreciations.

The second article examines discography as it goes beyond the title/performance/track level into the realm of the solo. Although the first published attempts at this go back nearly seventy years, the twenty-first century discographer can take advantage of new computer tools.
