Where Music Lives: In A Jazz Past Resurrected

Philadelphia's jazz roots live in all quarters of the city. WRTI's Meridee Duddleston tracks the telltale signs of the city's jazz past, through a digital endeavor.

A worldwide and community-based history project, All That Philly Jazz aims to keep alive Philadelphia’s contribution to the nation’s unique art form. It's mapping Philadelphia's rich jazz legacy through crowdsourcing, featuring stories, information, and contributions from jazz lovers and listeners, performers, experts and non-experts alike. The All That Philly Jazz map is here. Watch the map take shape and learn more about breathing life into this walk through the city’s jazz history.

Meridee Duddleston meets All That Philly Jazz's Faye Anderson on at Broad and Lombard Streets - a spot once bustling with jazz traffic from two jazz clubs, a theater and a hotel, where performers stayed.
