The Independent Journal of Creative Improvised Music. Regular publication since 1976.
As of January 1 2012, Cadence Magazine will transfer publishing rights to David Haney. The content will remain much the same, including columns and reviews from many of the existing Cadence writers. The format will change to include an online site hosting Cadence Magazine plus an annual print edition. The new Cadence contains a few new features such as “Jazz Stories - A Video History”; video interviews with living jazz masters. There is also a new section targeting higher educational needs with resources such as lesson plans, crosswords, and contests.
Dear Cadence Readers
A new era for Cadence is about to unfold. David Haney has taken over publication duties and is diligently working to move Cadence in a new direction. Publishing Cadence has never been easy and this new direction presents its own challenges. David has all of my support.
My hope is that Cadence will continue for years to come, a scenario possible only with your cooperation. Your immediate help is needed and appreciated. And a big “thank you” to all of our contributors, present and past. Every one of you worked hard and it is appreciated.
Thank you and Cheers – Bob Rusch

CADENCE MAGAZINE EDITORIAL POLICY
Beginning with the October 2007 issue, Cadence increased in number of pages, changed to perfect binding, and became a quarterly publication. Established in January 1976, Cadence Magazine was a monthly publication through its first 381 issues (until September 2007).
From its very first issue, Cadence has had a very open and inclusive editorial policy. This has allowed Cadence to publish extended feature interviews in which musicians, well known or otherwise, speak frankly about their experiences and perspectives on the music world; and to cover and review all genres of improvised music (resulting in, so far, over 55,000 reviews).
The existence of Cadence has never been dependent on advertising. Nor has Cadence ever knowingly allowed advertisers, personal friendships, or associations to affect any editorial policies or actions or the independence of its writers. We are reader supported.
Cadence essentially always has been and remains “the best independent magazine of Jazz, Blues, and Creative Improvised Music that money can't buy."
