Music and Rhythm

“With its lurid headlines and daring (for the early 1940s) ‘cheesecake’ photography, Music and Rhythm was clearly intended as a commercial venture. Its general tone was sensational. The original editor, Paul Edward Miller, doubled as record reviewer; he was succeeded by Carl Cons, earlier of Down Beat, in 1941. Music and Rhythm featured articles, genuine and ghostwritten, by a large number of popular jazz and swing musicians, including Count Basie, Benny Goodman, Coleman Hawkins, Woody Herman, Harry James, Gene Krupa, Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Jack Teagarden, and Cootie Williams. Sharon Pease’s transcriptions of recorded piano solos are also of interest.”
