Metronome

Lacunae: Vol. 64 no. 3.

Although Metronome began publication in 1885, in 1932/33 the journal began shifting its editorial focus to jazz. Included here are the years primarily treating jazz, 1932 to 1961.

“Founded in 1881, Metronome magazine became indispensable during the swing era, when it switched its focus to jazz. For decades, it was the best publication for reviews, features, and show listings of the era’s foremost music genre.”
