This two-room house museum in Baku's old city explores the life and work of Vagif Mustafazade, a pioneering jazz pianist of the Soviet period. Mustafazade created a new form of Azerbaijani music, mixing the Azerbaijani folk form of mugham with American jazz. At the time jazz was officially banned in the Soviet Union so much of this development happened underground.
