Jazz has played a vital part in the history of music since it began, and even if you don’t know it, it has probably influenced the music you listen to today. From the greats such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Dizzy Gillespie to the underrated genius of Duke Pearson and Sam Rivers, we pride ourselves on having a fine selection of jazz records for our customers.
We’ve selected a few highlights and latest arrivals below, and the full catalogue can be found at eil.com
