Stuttgart+Munich: Jazz Podium #8 August 1967
Original August 1967 issue of the German jazz monthly Jazz Podium with American jazz trumpeter, composer and bandleader Miles Davis (1926—1991) on the front cover. Photo of Miles with saxophonist Wayne Shorter, who would participate in the 1967 Berliner Jazztage, credited to Jan Persson. Also in this issue: John Coltrane In Memoriam, New Orleans, Rod Levitt, Don Ellis, Dave Pike, and free jazz. Founded by the president of the German Jazz Federation, Dieter Zimmerle in 1952, Jazz Podium is Germany’s premiere jazz monthly. The first issue was published in Vienna in September 1952, but Stuttgart soon became the magazine’s headquarters. It was Zimmerle’s hope that jazz in Germany would be carried by people whose love for music was strong enough not to be fooled by external resistance. Indeed Zimmerle himself never made any money with the magazine. Jazz Podium is still in print and still thrives on this kind of idealism, with its nearly one hundred freelancers working on a voluntary basis.
