Monterey Jazz Festival Collection

Hot fun in the Summertime! Summer makes us think of music festivals, and the Monterey Jazz Fest, held since 1958, is one of the best in the world. Stanford University’s Archive of Recorded Sound houses the Monterey Jazz Festival’s collection of performance recordings and provides us with access to clips and audio files of some of the Fest’s great performances.
