This chapter describes the British jazz scene in the 1960s. Jazz had different identities in its international, national and local (in this case Liverpudlian) settings. At all three of these levels, however, the picture changed in a similar way between 1960 and 1965. In 1960 there was a viable and coherent jazz economy; by 1965, at all three levels, it was starting to disappear rapidly, mainly due to the emergence of rock. The influence of jazz on the Liverpool poetry scene is also considered.
