Our purpose.

The Jazz on line website was created 2001 by Michel Essevaz-Roulet to provide access to the American music of the first half of the XX. secular.
First half XX. American music was recorded on 78 rpm shellac discs which are a humanity treasure and are to be preserve. So is the purpose of Jazz on line, and you are invited to help us to verify titles, executants, catalog numbers, matrix, etc.
We intend also to find again the names of the authors or composers, which are often omitted in the catalogs.
Jazz on line is a non- profit organisation (following the French law of July 1901.
