• American Jazz Museum: A John Baker Film Collection Sampler Play

    As part of its permanent collection, the American Jazz Museum is home to one of the world's largest and most comprehensive collection of film footage pertaining to jazz.
    This includes more than 5,000 titles, consisting of approximately 1,497,000 feet of 16- and 35-mm black and white and color films -- roughly 700 hours -- dating from 1927 through the early 1970s.

    Originally amassed by John H. Baker, an Ohio attorney and collector, and acquired by the City of Kansas City, Mo., in 1984, the collection spotlights many of the legendary performers with whom we immediately associate the sights and sounds of jazz.
