Jazz Interactions

Jazz Interactions, Inc. is a non-profit-making organisation whose aim is "to stimulate a greater awareness of jazz by providing jazz information and educational services to New York metropolitan area" [http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/entity.php?id=3970] .

The organisation was founded by a group of jazz musicians including Joe Newman, and apart from its educational activities it created the Jazz Interactions Orchestra. Jazz Interactions was the original administrator of the Jazz Oral History Project [http://newarkwww.rutgers.edu/IJS/OralHistory.html] , before handing over responsibility to the Smithsonian Institution (who later passed it on to The Institute of Jazz Studies, a research branch of the John Cotton Dana Library of Rutgers University).
