Welcome to the Autumn 2018 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!

The latest issue of Vintage Jazz Mart has articles on composer/pianist W. Benton Overstreet, best-remembered for his jazz standard ‘There’ll Be Some Changes Made’ and a study of Victor’s Oakland, California studio/pressing plant, with a highly-detailed listing of the recordings most likely to interest jazz and hot dance music enthusiasts and some great and previously unpublished photos! We’ve reproduced the Overstreet article in full here, but you’ll need to subscribe to read the whole of the Victor in Oakland article!
