This essay is a response to Alyn Shipton's essay in the previous edition of the journal. It will explore two related ideas: firstly, what the concept of memory offers the process of documenting jazz history; and secondly, the implications a theory of memory has for how jazz critics interpret that history and the documents on which they rely to verify the past.
