Bassist Jean Warland's Music Fund at the MIM
The Warland Fund comprises Jean Warland’s musical instruments and accessories, an extensive international jazz record collection and numerous personal documents, including photographs and slides tracing his musical career (as a bassist, composer and arranger). It is, however, the hundreds of recordings – mostly never released as records – made during concerts, jam sessions and studio rehearsals that are of particular historical interest. Among the recordings, some are especially worth mentioning: a tape labelled Django and various concert recordings of the Sax no End project. This exceptional collection is far more than a simple ensemble of souvenirs: it is a compendium that reflects the many facets of the career of one of Belgium’s most important jazz musicians. Jean Warland’s collection also makes a perfect match for the collection of the Robert Pernet Fund, which has also been entrusted to the MIM by the King Baudouin Foundation. Making these two collections available to the general public as well as researchers, the MIM is thus developing its profile as a reference centre for Belgian jazz. (Cultural Heritage is an initiative of The King Baudouin Foundation).
