Linked Jazz

Linked Jazz is an ongoing project investigating the potential of the application of Linked Open Data (LOD) technology to enhance the discovery and visibility of digital cultural heritage materials. More specifically, the project focuses on digital archives of jazz history to expose relationships between musicians and reveal their community’s network.

New modes of connecting cultural data and making them searchable as a whole in a seamless discovery environment would open unprecedented opportunities to create new kinds of meaning and elicit new streams of interpretation. The goal of this project is to help uncover meaningful connections between documents and data related to the personal and professional lives of musicians who often practice in rich and diverse social networks.

Time on my hands, you in my arms, nothing but love in view Then if you fall once and for all, I’ll see my dreams come true Moments to spare with someone you care for, one love affair for two And so with time on my hands and you in my arms and love in my heart, all for you

Time on my hands, you in my arms, nothing but love in view
Then if you fall once and for all, I’ll see my dreams come true
Moments to spare with someone you care for, one love affair for two
And so with time on my hands and you in my arms and love in my heart, all for you

Your poise! Your pose! That cute fantastic nose! You’re mighty like a knockout, you’re mighty like a rose I’m sold, I’m hooked, the well known goose is cooked You got me little fella; I’m sunk, I’m gone, I’m hooked

Your poise! Your pose! That cute fantastic nose!
You’re mighty like a knockout, you’re mighty like a rose
I’m sold, I’m hooked, the well known goose is cooked
You got me little fella; I’m sunk, I’m gone, I’m hooked
