JazzTimes Back in Action

Effective 7/10/09, the JazzTimes brand has been acquired by Madavor Media LLC, a market-leading enthusiast publishing and trade-show group based in Boston. We are very optimistic about the magazine’s long-term future given the resources and vision of Madavor and its staff.

Madavor will resume publishing of JazzTimes immediately with an August issue featuring a cover story on Joe Lovano, an article by investigative reporter Marc Hopkins on the effect of the economy on jazz festivals, and a photo essay celebrating Blue Note, with photos from Francis Wolff and Jimmy Katz and an introduction by Ashley Kahn.

Current subscriptions will be extended by one issue to compensate for the June issue that was not published.

We appreciate the kind words of support and concern we received from our readership and members of the jazz community, and thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time in the history of JazzTimes. Madavor Media is looking forward to working with the generous and supportive jazz community.

    Super awesome! I caught a massive HA when I heard that JT would stop printing. Good to have you guys back. Wish you guys all the best and look forward to receiving my issues again. Long Live JT!

    Thank you for your kind words. We are working hard to not only keep the magazine and the site at the same level, but improving them both in all sorts of ways. We're even talking about some special editions that we think will in fact be very special. We're printing the next issue - an August/September, which will be followed by an October issue with a guitar theme, plus our annual Education Guide. On behalf of the JT staff, thanks again for your words of support.
