Wilbur Ware was born September 8, 1923 in Chicago, IL and died in September 9, 1979 in Philadelphia, PA.

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

Thanks to contributors:

Jürgen Bliedtner, Robert L. Campbell, Bill Kirchner, John Litweiler, Chuck Nessa

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.


General discographies: All-Music Guide, Bruyninckx, Jepsen, Lord, Raben

This discography was produced using BRIAN, a computer discography database program created by Steve Albin. BRIAN is a significant step in the field of jazz research and holds much potential. I encourage discographers to investigate this program. Steve has been incredibly helpful in terms of technical support and in custom-tailoring this program.
