Notes

First editions; a complete run of this irregular, important, and hard-to-find periodical. One of the most influential voices in modern American music and cofounder with Jan Wenner of Rolling Stone, editor and contributor Gleason was, according to his wife, "not a good writer. He wrote about interesting things." Apart from Gleason, other contributors included Studs Terkel, "Big Bill's Last Session", a piece on Big Bill Broonzy in the studio written shortly before, and published shortly after, his death; Leonard Feather on "vocalese"; John Hammond on Lester Young; Ira Gitler on Cannonball Adderley; and Duke Ellington with "A Royal View of Jazz". Photo-sections include a portfolio from Monterey '58 from Jerry Stoll and Monk at the Black Hawk by Peter Breinig. The last editorial remarks; "Some had ceased to ask "when is the magazine coming out?" and began to ponder "Is the magazine coming out?" It is indeed". And then it didn't.
