Cadence offers the most complete coverage of the entire creative improvising music scene extant. Cadence is not some ephemera, but is a thorough on-going documentation of the scene for this and future generations. Since 1976, Cadence has reviewed over 55,000 different books, records, CDs, videos, and tapes and offered monthly worldwide coverage to a worldwide readership. Cadence Magazine is regarded as one of the standard references of the art.
Upon receipt it will be listed in the current issue as an issued release. It will then be assigned to a writer for coverage in a future issue. Tearsheets are always sent to the address of the record label. We make use of press releases, itineraries, bios, photos, etc. We also offer yearly subscriptions. Click here for information on subscribing.
The U.S. Postal Service now charges over $10.00 to mail a single copy of Cadence internationally. This is just part of the inflationary costs implemented by the U.S. Postal Service over the past few years. As a result, single issues of Cadence going to an international destination will be sent out only as part of a bulk mailing from our offices, or as part of a CD/LP and/or audio order being sent to the individual.
So if you order an issue to be sent outside the USA one week after we have had a bulk mailing. . .be patient.
Thanks for your understanding.
