jazz record center

Apr.13, 2013

one of the most happening jazz vinyls shops in the world!!!

jazz record center, NYC…. a very appropriate name…..

over 30 year and running.

Fred Cohen – the author of the great Blue Note discography – is running business with a knowledge that takes yr breath away…. only comparable with Harald Hult at Andra Jazz in stockholm



jazz  record center is a DREAM!

behind the door…. the very famous door…..

some stores up in a quite normal NYC- house….

….is heaven for jazz vinyl lovers and related beings:


… I should advise you that most of the inventory is not on the website. There is simply not enough hours in the day to put all of the stock on it.  But anyone can e-mail them at jazzrecordcenter@verizon.net and ask for something specific.

they do mail order and can ship anywhere.   hours are 10:00-6:00, Monday-Saturday.  JRC are located at 236 West 26 Street, Room 804, New York, NY 10001.  phone number is (212) 675-4480, fax is (212) 675-4504.

all jazz available… just ask…. bunk johnson….. albert ayler… sun ra…

check the images…. and just go there:
