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!

Thanks to legendary cartoonist and VJM subscriber Robert Crumb, we have a new cover design! The latest issue is packed with articles, including the conclusion of our Choo Choo Jazzers serialisation, a great piece on Lee Wiley and her groundbreaking ‘themed’ recordings of The Great American Songbook, and a mystery concerning a photograph of Mamie Smith in the OKeh studio in 1931, but you’ll need to subscribe to the magazine to read all of them!

In the 'hard copy' we've a truly fantastic selection of Jazz and Blues 78s on offer from some of the best-known and well-respected 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.

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! What gems are you missing out on by not subscribing? It costs less than you think!

We've all the regular  features, including our now-legendary CD and Book reviews, Ate van Delden's '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!
