The David W. Niven Collection of Early Jazz Legends, 1921-1991

David W. Niven was apparently a great jazz enthusiast. He donated his collection of 650 cassettes to a school library in the US before he passed way. This collection was then put online on the Internet Archive.

With this visualization I aimed at making the exploration of this archive easier, while also facilitating the access to specific cassettes thanks to the ability to filter by musician. You can check whether I’ve reached that goal by taking a look at the original layout on the Internet Archive.

The live version can be viewed here.
