Cool School Project Please Help!
So for one of my classes at U of I, I have to do a research project on Jazz from the 50's and 60's. It doesn't really have any requirements, but the main point of the project is to introduce the class to the school library's archives (the Leonard Feather Jazz Collection). There's all kinds of stuff down there ranging from Ella Fitzgerald's handwritten letters to Lionel Hampton's personal vibes.
So I was just curious, what would be the first thing that you guys would start digging through to write about? I'm nothing special when it comes to writing, but I figure that it might be cool to work on something that a fellow drummer suggested...
