Jazz Record Bash Hits New Jersey June 21
This year marks the 39th Annual Jazz Record Bash, which is being held at the Hilton Woodbridge in Iselin, New Jersey this weekend — Friday, June 21st and Saturday, June 22nd. Collectors and dealers from around the country bring rare and not-so-rare 78s, LPs, CDs and a vast plethora of memorabilia for sale or trade, and are treated to film festivals both nights. Many luminaries in the record field and musicians alike gather with collectors and lovers of jazz music. (That’s Ray Drummond in the photo, browsing through the bins in an earlier Bash.) Contact the Hilton Woodbridge for more information and directions!
