The Archival Producer: Zev Feldman

Read "The Archival Producer: Zev Feldman" reviewed by B.D. Lenz

I have to be honest. When I approached Zev Feldman about doing this interview I really had no idea what an “archival producer" was.

MUSICIAN Born:

Jeudi

Welcome! I'm so happy to meet you. I'm Jeudi.

Here's my story: I love the vintage scene because it allows me to dress the part and feel like a time-traveler. As a performer of vintage music, I like to take people on a similar journey. As you’re listening, I hope you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to the past - - maybe it’s a swank Supper Club in Manhattan, an intimate Parisian Cabaret, an elegant London ballroom, or to Hollywood’s Golden Age—or maybe you’ll just drift on the music, back to your own memories."

This love of history, really goes back to my family

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
