The Jazz Bar

Jazz can mean different things to different people. For some, it is defined by virtuosic instrumentalists - saxophonists like Charlie Parker and John Coltrane, for example, who both revolutionised and redefined jazz - while for others, it is about unique singers who possessed the mentality of horn players; like Ella Fitzgerald, whose caressing purity of tone belied her ability to do jaw-dropping vocal gymnastics.

About this collection

Introducing The Jazz Bar

Jazz can mean different things to different people. The music continues to evolve, grow and move in exciting new directions. Those developments add to the richness of a history that is brought to life by VinylBox’s jazz collection, where icons sit alongside lesser-known figures and reveal the music’s astonishing diversity.

"Good selection of vinyl, all new and packaged well. The art cards received are nice doubling up as post cards on the back. Value for money is tip top too and would recommend as a means of finding new music and broadening your collection."
