The OCLC Research WorldCat Identities project is ending. The work provided valuable insight into how to mine bibliographic data for insight into the People and Organizations that create and serve as subjects library materials. The findings demonstrated the power of data mining over the world’s largest set of bibliographic metadata and highlighted the value of collaborative collective cataloging. The WorldCat Identities data has positively impacted OCLC’s work to build the WorldCat Entities application and the 150 million Person and Work descriptions accessible through it. This work will continue to build our entity ecosystem to support the future knowledge work of librarians.

The WorldCat Identities web application will be retired and shut down in the coming months and the data is no longer being updated. The most recent version of the data is from July of 2022. As OCLC continues to build out the WorldCat Entities ecosystem, please use it as a source for persistent Person identifiers.

Treme swagger (10:54) Drei herausragende Instrumentalisten des Jazz' mit ihrer 3. Zusammenarbeit. Unter der Leitung von Saxofonist Donald Harrison spielen Ron Carter am Bass und Billy Cobham am Schlagzeug. Die beiden Letzteren sind Legenden ihres Faches, zusammen mit dem viel jüngeren Harrison zünden sie ein kreatives Feuerwerk, das live eine besonders gute Figur macht. "This is post-bop playing at a high and imaginative level ... 'This Is Jazz' is the finest offering by this trio to date. Let's hope it isn't another 6 years before they record again" ( "This record features 3 masters showing all the world how this music is really played. Combining a first-rate set list, equal measures of exceptional soloing and ensemble playing, and an energy that should be bottled, 'This is Jazz' truly lives up to its name" (
