JAZZ ARTISTRY NOW review products
We do editorial “review quotes” of select recordings we choose to feature unsolicited at no charge, it’s free to have recordings featured like those posted with the “best of…” list.
We also do full album reviews for $100. The reason we came to that price is because having your album reviewed by a professional jazz journalist is of value forever and we actually pay the journalists for writing the reviews. This product is perfect for most artists today because spending $100 and getting a professional review from an established jazz journalist is lots less than a $5,000 publicity campaign by a jazz publicist to hopefully get reviewed by industry publications.

“Do not categorize about music. You take each musician at the time and open yourself to that musician.”– Nat Hentoff
MUSIC FOR REVIEW: We accept unsolicited submissions for JAN music review consideration. Professional musicians only, please. Take a listen to the types of artists and music we review before submitting material to JAN.
DIGITAL, CD, AND VINYL: Jazz Artistry Now prefers to receive submissions in digital format for reviews. However, we may on occasion request a physical copy be mailed to us.
We get lots of music to consider for limited space, which is cool.
In addition to the website, we post several notifications to our social media pages when a recording has been reviewed by JAN, so please don’t send follow-up notes asking about the status of an approved review request and submission. Thanks.

Jazz Artistry Now magazine charging our administrative fee for producing professional reviews by professional jazz journalists is a publishing fee that keeps JAN going. Our writers share in these proceeds as compensation for their professional work writing.
Jazz Artistry Now writers do not accept anything that could be construed as compensation for favorable coverage in JAN or as an inducement to alter or forgo unfavorable coverage in JAN.
As with all areas of the professional jazz industry infrastructure, we believe that our jazz journalists writing for JAN should be compensated fairly for their work as part of a means toward making and maintaining livelihoods and careers.
Clients can not simply purchase full album reviews:
- Recordings are prescreened before review assignments are made.
- Jazz Artistry Now only accepts music for review consideration that we consider to be the best representations of jazz artistry now.
NOTE ABOUT FULL REVIEWS:
If you ultimately pay JAN $100 for a full record review, it is because the editors have thoroughly listened to your recording first, screened it, and accepted it to send to one of our writers.
Your record has been vetted first and is of the quality and musical level that we accept at JAN. All recordings reviewed are among the best Jazz Artistry Now in our professional opinions.
A “win / win” situation for both, the artists and the publication.
