Jazz Journal is packed with luscious jazz stories; festival reports, gig guides, ralbum reviews, interviews, books, DVDs, and obituaries for the late leading lights of the Jazz world. It also carries some bizarre, loosely Jazz related facts, like what the Honda Jazz (a little hatchback) is doing as the Honda Jazz in Europe, when in America it’s called the Fitta. Turns out that Fitta is a little bit lewd for Europe: in Nordic it’s rather naughty. Ok, so it’s not strictly Jazz related, but it’s quite entertaining. The rest of the magazine, however, gets down and dirty with the serious business of Jazz. With interviews from some of the most extraordinary musicians, movers and shakers in the business, Jazz Journal magazine has formerly dubbed itself “the greatest jazz magazine in the world”. Since then, nothing has changed, except perhaps the size of its ego. It’s still the greatest jazz magazine in the world, it just doesn’t tell everyone it is now! We think it doesn’t need to. Its reputation precedes it. In its present incarnation Jazz Journal is edited by the celebrated Mark Gilbert, and through expert knowledge, passion, and an instinctive feel for the genre, Jazz Journal’s journalists have continued to deliver the highest standard of Jazz commentary, in a way both insightful and entertaining.
Jazz Journal has been the home of jazz since 1948 and remains the most authoritative and independent source of jazz opinion and information in the UK and worldwide. It features news, interviews, surveys and entertaining columns as well as book and DVD reviews and up to 100 jazz CD reviews per month.
