Bill Barron was born on March 27, 1927 in Philadelphia, PA. He died on September 21, 1989 in Middletown, CT.

While this is the most comprehensive and accurate discography on Bill Barron ever produced, there still may be omissions and errors. Please help if you can.

Thanks to contributors:

Anna Barron, Jim Farrington, Dan Gould, Brad Lewin, Bertrand Überall

All who helped with relevant parts of my earlier discography of Kenny Barron

Special thanks to all the staff at the Rutgers Institute of Jazz Studies where I had access to virtually every issue listed in the discography as well as the various relevant published sources.
