This report concluded a 12-month mapping excercise of British Jazz in the year 2004-2005, in order to derive its total economic value, which it valued at £86.77m for that period.  The sources of revenue were broken down into the following categories:

  • Ticket Sales
  • Musicians Fees
  • Public Subsidy
  • Commercial Sponsorship
  • CD Sales and PPL licensing fees
  • Compositions and music publishing
  • Education
  • Other

The report was commissioned by Jazz Services and written by Mykaell Riley and Dave Laing, with additional contributions from Catherine Loveday and Norton York, University of Westminster.

 A subsequent larger study – The Value of Jazz In Britain Pt 2 – was conducted in 2008 and published in 2010.
