For more than 4 decades, jazz lovers throughout the U.S. and the world have made the pilgrimage to the Annual NJ Jazz Record Collector’s Bash in Central New Jersey. There, they’ve uncovered vintage 78s, LPs, 45s, cylinders, CDs, DVDs, books, sheet music, catalogs and other memorabilia.

Throughout the 2½ day event, collectors can riffle through thousands of items from 40+ vendors plus meet like-minded music aficionados.

In addition, on both Friday and Saturday afternoon and evening, jazz historians David Weiner, Mark Cantor, Will Friedwald and Steve Kramer will present vintage jazz programs featuring rare film and concert clips.
