The downloadable demonstration program allows you
to explore a small part of the vast database included on the full
edition of The Jazz Discography CD-ROM. It is designed to help you
experience the program’s numerous features and to experience
the scope of the discographical data it provides.
After downloading the demo program we suggest you take the
step-by-step “Guided Tour”. The tour will allow you to
try the many searches that give you access to detailed information
about virtually any jazz record ever released.
If you'd like to know more about jazz discography, the
abbreviations commonly used etc., just click on “Help”
in the demo program toolbar then select “Contents”
followed by “Introduction”.
Note: The scope of this demonstration program is limited to a
random selection of 100 leaders extracted from the over 46,500
leaders included in the full database. As a result it includes
only a limited number of the over 228,700 recording sessions
included on the CD-ROM Version 17.0.
