FAQ

  • How do the artist and album sub-genre classifications work ?
    When an artist is first imported to the site, their albums are assigned the sub-genre that seems to fit the majority of their albums. Later, site members may go through and individually evaluate the artist's albums and determine which albums may be of a sub-genre different than the one the artist was originally tagged with. Some artists, such as Miles Davis, may have albums tagged in many different sub-genres.
  • What type of releases do we accept?
    - Albums
    - Live albums
    - Boxsets/Compilations
    - EPs and Splits
    - Singles
    - Demos
    - Promos, Fan Club
    - NO BOOTLEGS
  • How do I contribute or become a collaborator?
    Every member can contribute, just login and look for a special action link in the left menu of each page called the MEMBER ZONE. A list of possible member contributions includes:

    - Post reviews and ratings
    - Add missing albums and movies to the artist's discography
    - Post shouts
    - Participate in the forum
    - Add artists to your favorite lists

  • What are Collaborators?
    We are always looking for people who are knowledgeable about jazz, and who may want to help us build the data base of this site. Currently we are especially seeking people with extensive knowledge in the sub-genres of jazz that take place in the years 1900 to 1950. Some of the tasks that collaborators and special collaborators perform include:

    - Edit artist profiles
    - Evaluate and add artists
    - Edit album information and sub-genre classification
    - Add MP3s
