“Frustrated with the lack of published coverage of truly creative music, Robert Rusch founded Cadence magazine in 1975 to give a voice to avant-garde artists who were working hard to advance the state of contemporary music. Its format has remained relatively steady over a quarter century. Each issue features two or three interviews with creative musicians, along with a great number of reissue and new-release reviews. The center section of each issue contains a list of thousands of recordings.”
