Mission:  To preserve and share the body of work including audio, visual and written resources of Leigh Kamman, jazz broadcaster

Leigh Kamman was an important broadcaster and advocate for jazz music.  His career interviewing and presenting jazz started in his high school years and continued until his death in 2014 at the age of 92. 

 

He was helpful in integrating the "jazz world" early on by presenting and producing musicians of color and was friends with many of the giants of the industry.  Leigh's  legacy includes hundred's of historical interviews with musicians and thousand's of hours of sophisticated and elegant radio programming.  We plan to make many of these archives available for streaming from this website.

 

Donations to The Leigh Kamman Legacy Project, a 501(C3) corporation, will assist in this effort.
