Phil Schaap (1951-2021) was one of the most prominent voices in New York radio since he began broadcasting in 1970. He also taught in the Graduate Division at Juilliard and was the academic head of Swing University for Jazz at Lincoln Center. For 14 years, Phil taught in the American Studies Department at Princeton University. He has been profiled in the New Yorker magazine for his seminal role in the preservation of Jazz music, and is widely regarded as one of its foremost scholars. The knowledge and radio broadcasts on this website are the result of his lifelong immersion in America's finest original art form, and represent the highest possible quality of information available in modern Jazz scholarship.
This collection encompasses Phil's recordings of his own radio broadcasts over decades.
