We Jazz Magazine is a quarterly journal of new stories about creative music. Published by the Helsinki-based label We Jazz, the magazine sheds light on often rarely featured artists, events and topics across the spectrum of creative music, both topical and historical. In addition to articles, the magazine includes album reviews plus notes on live events, books, design, etc. The magazine has a worldwide network of collaborators with names like Ashley Kahn, Peter Margasak, Debra Richards, Mats Gustafsson, Daniel Spicer, Stewart Smith, and many more contributing to the highly inspired narrative around the music. Designed by We Jazz artistic director Matti Nives, the magazine is pressed on 140g Edixion paper with laminated 300g Invercote covers in 174 x 240 mm size and each issue runs 128 pages deep. In other words, this is one of those titles you want to stack up on your shelves for good, for the stories will remain fresh and the lavish look underlines the “keepsake” quality of the publication. The title of each issue is dedicated to the cover piece, and each issue’s cover features a bespoke illustration of the cover story subject.
