The Magazine

Established in 1999, Smooth Jazz News is a contemporary jazz, lifestyle and travel magazine that covers the best genre artists, festivals, concerts and cruises globally, plus a calendar of events, with splashes of art, culture and travel. Our content also includes book reviews, Cashmira’s Starguide, a DISCover New Music page, and other newsworthy discoveries we find throughout our jazz travels.

The once-popular nationwide radio format, which featured a special mix of instrumentals, soothing
vocals and classic R&B hits, has evolved into a music-themed lifestyle that integrates travel, fosters friendships and fuels fun for the over-50 crowd.

As we ease back into post-pandemic life, we will publish five print editions of Smooth Jazz News in 2022: March-April, May-June, July, August-September and October-November-December. We plan to resume our standard seven-issue publication schedule in 2023.

Please check out our print or digital magazine, which are proudly produced by a team of qualified,
passionate, journalists and creative professionals.

Thank you for your interest in Smooth Jazz News!

Sincerely,
Melanie Maxwell, Publisher
