JISC Collection

Over the last ten years Jazzwise has become the biggest-selling jazz magazine in Britain. In fact, it now outsells all the other UK jazz magazines put together. With agenda-setting news and comment, a comprehensive gig guide, in-depth features, exclusive interviews and over 100 CDs, books and DVDs reviewed in each issue it offers an excellent companion for music students with ambitions to perfect their instrument.

Latest Issue:

Jazzwise magazine’s July issue is out now and is a Love Supreme Jazz Festival special with legendary drummer Billy Cobham talking Miles, Mahavishnu and beyond in a revealing exclusive interview ahead of his festival headline show. There’s also a ‘lost’ 1980 interview with Cobham, reprinted in the issue, plus a specially curated playlist of his most memorable tracks.

Also in the issue is an interview with NYC tenor titan James Brandon Lewis – who is also on the Love Supreme line-up. Guitar guru Bill Frisell reveals his musical Turning Point and there’s a highly personal article by acclaimed jazz writer Val Wilmer on her pen-pal correspondence with some of jazz’s pioneers. 
The issue also lifts the lid on the historic 1968 Louis Armstrong BBC concert broadcasts that are set for release; there’s an Album Interview with former EST drummer Magnus Öström on his stunning new live tribute to Esbjörn Svensson and vocalist Jacqui Dankworth selects the albums she can’t live without in Takes Five.
All this plus the latest jazz news, gig guide, instrument reviews, live reviews, books and much more…
