The [Swiss Jazz archive](http://jazzorama.ch/) calls itself SwissJazzOrama (SJO). Founded 1989 in Rheinfelden as "Pro Jazz Switzerland", it has been located in Uster near Zurich since 1998.
SwissJazzOrama collects and archives all kinds of sound carriers, pictures, literature and other testimonies from the Jazz universe. It collects information about as many different types of Jazz as possible. Whether it is published/unpublished, popular/fringe. The SwissJazzOrama volunteers enter these documents in databases that are continuously updated and provide quick access.
This dataset contains part of the database queryable at http://jazzdaten.ch, the database where all of the various pieces of information it collects about the music are stored. First and foremost, it contains music metadata related to Switzerland:
- Recordings by or featuring Swiss artists
- recordings of concerts in Switzerland
- releases of Swiss labels
- Recordings of music by Swiss composers
