The roots of jazz run deep in Seattle culture. From the ’20s through the ’50s, the jazz scene flourished in nightclubs along Jackson Street, starting the careers of Quincy Jones, Ray Charles, Ernestine Anderson, and many others. If you allowed yourself to follow the sound of these music legends, you’d end up at Bud’s Jazz Records — where history could be heard and learned. Listen carefully, though, or you might pass this hidden repository that has been tucked away in a basement suite well below Jackson Street. Far from a polished mega-chain record store, Bud’s was the real deal with literal stacks upon stacks of records and CDs that helps them live up to their tagline – Jazz in all its forms.
