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

This issue has two fascinating articles that shed new light on less-researched aspects of the careers of two of the giants of 20th century music - Louis Armstrong and Jelly Roll Morton. In Louis’ case it is the three seasons he spent working with Fate Marable’s band on Mississippi pleasure steamers, and in particular the influence of…. Art Hickman! It’s a ‘must read’ by the respected author and musicologist Prof. Bruce Vermazen. The second is a well-researched piece on Jelly Roll Morton’s brief tenure in San Diego and Tijuana in 1921, which sheds new light on an inspirational period of Jelly’s career.

As you’ll see on our Auction link page we’ve another bumper offering of mouthwatering Jazz and Blues 78s including items from some legendary collections! This is especially true of the selection of rare pre-war and post-war Blues 78s. Amazingly, there are even more in the hard copy of VJM -  not all the auction listings are available on the VJM website - to see the others you’ll have to subscribe to the magazine - it’s great value and you can get your subscription HERE

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.

Whilst you'll find a great selection of Jazz and Blues 78 records and LPs for auction on the website, remember - there are many more record auctions and more articles in the 'hard copy' of the magazine -  and you will only see them by subscribing to the magazine!
