Autumn 2015 Update

Hines Web

Earl Hines, Chicago 1928. Mark Berresford Collection

Welcome to the latest update of VJM's website! Trevor Benwell started VJM in the autumn of 1953, which makes us the oldest continually-published jazz and blues magazine in the world!

This issue pays a long overdue tribute our great friend Chris Ellis who, since the 1960s,  has been a leading figure in the world of Jazz, Blues and Dance Band reissues and is still very active in his 87th year! The list of stars he has worked with or knew is very impressive and in this update he tells his life story in his own words.

We've more great articles and a fantastic selection of Jazz and Blues 78s and vinyl on offer from some of the best-known dealers and collectors around! Our proven track record of problem-free transactions forged over 60 years, together with unbeatable value advertising rates (that’s a fact - no fat cat shareholders or dotcom billionaires to pay dividends to here!) means we regularly offer the finest selection of records to be found anywhere - and this issue is particularly fine.

You'll find a great selection of Jazz and Blues 78 records and LPs for auction on the website but remember - there are many more record auctions and more articles in the 'hard copy' of the magazine -  you will only see them by subscribing to the magazine! What gems are you missing out on by not subscribing? It costs less than you think!

We've all the usual features, including our now-legendary CD and Book reviews, our 'Discographical Ramblings' page and other articles not available here - you really don't know what you're missing if you don't subscribe. The world’s leading jazz and blues 78 and LP collectors subscribe to VJM - ask them why!
