The Info List - Metronome Magazine

Metronome Magazine (or Metronome) was a music magazine published from 1881 until 1961.[1][2] The magazine in its early years catered for musicians in marching and then dance bands, but from the swing era, Metronome focused primarily on the genre of Jazz
music appealing to fans. During the 1940s, the cover title was displayed as "Metronome" (in a cursive script-style font) with the subtitle words "BANDS · RECORDS · RADIO"[3] (see Metronome logo image under "References"). Notable writers for the magazine were its co-editors, Leonard Feather

and Barry Ulanov; Miles Davis cited them as the only two white music critics in New York to understand bebop.[4] The magazine closed in 1961.[2]

Metronome All-Stars Band[edit] Metronome Magazine conducted an annual poll during the years 1939-1961[5] to choose the musicians whom their readers considered as the top jazz instrumentalists, for that year, playing each instrument. Often, the Metronome organization recorded the all-stars on a regular basis, with recording sessions of the bands chosen in 1939-1942, 1945–1950, 1953, and 1956.[5] In many cases, the all-stars group recorded two songs, with short solo performances, from nearly all of the participants.[5] In 1940, Metronome magazine
