Central to the Jazz Services mission statement introducing its Annual Report for the year 2008-9 is the same message that has driven the organisation throughout the 24 years it has been making its crucial contribution to British music: Jazz Services has always seen its principal mission as being ‘to provide a voice and support for UK jazz'.

Jazz in the Media
The purpose of this report is to examine the coverage of jazz by Britain’s national ‘broadsheet’ newspapers, television channels and radio stations. Such coverage was monitored for a two month period at the end of 2007 and the beginning of 2008. The principal conclusion of the report is that, despite the growth of interest in jazz, as evidenced by increases in festival and club audiences, the music is still treated as inferior to classical music in the press and on the air.
