Rayakan Ultah 75 tahun, Majalah Downbeat terbitkan Edisi Kolektor

Buat anda penggemar musik jazz, sudah barang tentu mengenal majalah jazz terbitan Amerika Serikat, Downbeat yang dalam setiap edisinya memuat beragam informasi seputar dunia jazz baik album baru, review, profil, wawancara dan hal-hal menarik lainnya.

Bulan Juli ini, 75 tahun sudah Downbeat hadir mengisi dan memberikan kontribusi pada dunia jazz. Dan untuk itu, mereka akan menerbitkan edisi kolektor guna merayakan ulang tahun kali ini.

Dalam cuplikan artikel yang tersedia disitus Downbeat.com, John McDonough menulis bagaimana hubungan simbiosis antara klarinetis Benny Goodman dan Downbeat ditahun 1930-an.

Berikut sedikit cuplikannya,

A successful magazine brand doesn’t happen by itself. It needs help. DownBeat’s destiny might have been very different had its early trajectory not converged with an unknown clarinet player–Benny Goodman.

A magazine is a mirror that exists symbiotically with the objects it reflects. Each needs the other. It is a natural, often intuitive expression of its time, often a manifestation of a vague sensibility groping for identity. Great magazines find half-formed themes, gather and amplify them into a critical mass, and cycle them back into the culture with magnified impact. The New Yorker tapped into a revolt against provincialism in the ’20s and became the voice of cosmopolitan wit. Life Magazine’s photojournalism found its calling in World War II, and Rolling Stone made itself the crossroads of rock and youthful protest in the ’60s. Each intersected with its special moment with a unique precision.
