School of Jazz

Related Recordings

A complete discography of all School of Jazz students and faculty would be an enormous task. Included here is a limited view showing mostly the interaction of students with faculty and also recordings made at Lenox.

In addition to those listed, it should be noted that recordings of The Jimmy Giuffre 3, Modern Jazz Quartet, and Oscar Peterson Trio (with Ray Brown and Herb Ellis) albums have an indirect connection to the Lenox School of Jazz as all members were on the Lenox faculty. The recordings by Max Roach with Art Davis are also worth mentioning as that groups was in residence at Lenox in 1958.
