lazzwise magazine was launched last month. If this is the first time you have seen it you might want to know what the magazine is all about.
Jazzwise covers jazz music today. It’s often difficult finding features or reviews in the mainstream press about some of today’s artists, even if they are well-known. The magazine aims to remedy this.
In our review section the emphasis is on new releases and selected reissues which bring rare material to the market or add to the quality of the original music by remastering or better presentation. To help you pick out what's good and what’s not there is a star system and recommended discs worth adding to your collection.
The concept of a jazz magazine isn’t exactly new but the reasoning for having one is only too relevant in a music magazine climate which has other things to worry about. Stephen G raham , ed ito r c Jazzwise May 1997
