Down Beat Magazine, Jan. 25, 1956 issue

[Down Beat Magazine (Jan. 25, 1956)]

以前ここで紹介した当時のカタログ 以後,時期の異なるカタログをその他何種類か入手しましたが,今回は当時の雑誌を買ってみました. アメリカのジャズ雑誌としては最も有名な部類に入る, Down Beat の 1956年 1月25日号

Since I acquired the Mercury catalogue pamphlet I introduced at this site a while ago, I bought several other Mercury pamphlets. And this time, I have bought one of the most famous Jazz magazines Down Beat magazine of Jan. 25, 1956 issue.

まずこの号を入手してみようと思ったのは,EmArcy 特集が掲載されているから.Nat Hentoff の記事と共に,EmArcy 初代プロデューサの Bob Shad 自身の寄稿が読めます.当時の雑誌ということもあって,EmArcy スタート直後の勢いがリアルに感じられます.また,今となっては歴史的に貴重な情報もいくつか読み解く事ができます (例えば EmArcy レーベルの最初のリリースが 1954年10月であった事実など).その他,かの有名な Down Beat Jazz Reviews など,読み解きどころ満載で楽しめます.

The reason why I wished to obtain this issue was, that the Jan. 25 1956 issue had a special feature articles dedicated to the EmArcy label. An excllent article by Nat Hentoff, as well as EmArcy's producer Bob Shad's own writes are on the special issue. We can read and feel the atmosphere of that time when EmArcy was going to emerge and expand. Furthermore, some historically important facts can be found on these articles (such that EmArcy's very first release was made in Oct. 1954). Of course there are so many other interesting articles and ads on this issue.
