Meet the Patrons of the National Jazz Archive

The National Jazz Archive is proud to have the following Patrons and is grateful to them for supporting and adding weight to the work and aims of the Archive.

Our Patrons help the Archive by publicly supporting our campaigns as well as promoting and attending fund-raising and other significant Archive events. They are well know in the fields of Jazz performance, music journalism, photography, politics and broadcasting.

Many of our Patrons are performers who have been at the forefront of jazz development in the UK and who are still delighting audiences today. Biographies of all our Patrons can be found by clicking the photographs or names of the Patrons below.
