Welcome to the Spring 2014 edition of All About Jazz magazine. Our maiden issue eclipsed 100,000 readers, which kicked off a series of raucous celebrations that lasted throughout Jazz Appreciation Month.

And the party continues...

We're all in, and we're doing our part to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Blue Note Records with a special issue. Over 150 pages focused solely on Blue Note, spanning the label's storied past up through the present day and with a peek into the future. We've interviewed some of Blue Note's rising new stars and we've compiled material from All About Jazz's rich archive including past chats with Chairman Emeritus Bruce Lundvall and legendary recording engineer Rudy van Gelder.

And that's not all!

We've packed this issue with classic Francis Wolff photos, Reid Miles' iconic album cover designs, vinyl and CD reviews, all topped off with another must-read Genius Guide to Jazz installment, "A Brief, Yet Largely Incomprehensible, History of Blue Note."

Enjoy, and please share this edition with your friends through the issuu.com platform or through your favorite social network or social bookmarking website.

We'll return with a new edition this Summer.

Until then, stay current on all things jazz by visiting us at allaboutjazz.com and jazznearyou.com.

All the best,
Michael Ricci

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
