B' e Jim Love (1943-2006) fear de na fir-naidheachd a b' urramaich air a' Ghàidhealtachd. Chaidh e dhan 'Inverness Courier' ann an 1988, agus na dheasaiche air ann an 2003. Roimhe sin 's e neach-naidheachd aig a' 'Phress and Journal' a bh' ann, ag obair an Inbhir Nis. Bha Jim uabhasach ùidheil air ceòl jazz, ach cuideachd bha e gu mòr an sàs a' toirt fàs air taobh a' chiùil traidiseanta air a' Ghàidhealtachd sna 1990an 's na 2000an.

Sa chuibhreann chlaistinneach seo on phrògram rèidio 'Moray Firth People' tha Jim a' còmhradh ri Helen MacPherson mu ùidh ann an jazz.

Interviewer: Now, but your interest in jazz actually started in Inverness?

Yes, that's right. Em, in the fifties, there was a jazz club in the Exchange which is roughly where the, the steps up to Upper Bridge Street are now. And, eh, some local enthusiasts had taken over some vacant rooms above the shops in the Exchange, and had done them up into this very dimly lit atmospheric place where they used to listen to jazz records, dance to jazz records and, very occasionally, eh, get some musicians in to play jazz. And it was, I suppose, quite a, an exotic place and eh, I managed to infiltrate there as a fifteen year old.

There I was introduced to people playing different styles of jazz, like Mr Young [Lee] and Stan Getz and Miles Davis and Cannonball Adderly and musicians for whom I've still got a great, a great affection. After the Exchange was demolished to make way for Bridge Street, the guys in the jazz club went looking for alternative premises and then obtained a basement in the Ness Café, which again was con-, it was really I think, from the point of view of facilities and atmosphere, was the best of all the premises they ever had.

But eventually they lost that and they went looking for somewhere else and they found an upstairs room in Eastgate, eh, above Gordon's Grain Store, or Fraser MacColl's, I suppose you should say, and they converted that in. But by that time the jazz boom had passed, it was the mid sixties, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and everything had started, so jazz club fell away then, and went into abeyance for ten years; it was ten years before it was resurrected, but that's another story.
