For the second installment of the ten, early 1960's Jazz Journal magazines I picked up a few weeks ago, we turn our heads and ears to Dave Brubeck, who graces the cover of the February 1961 edition. Dave Brubeck is a jazz pianist, born in California in 1920. He is probably best know for the Dave Brubeck Quartet which he started in 1951 with Paul Desmond, during which time he regularly released up to four albums per year. In addition to 'regular' albums, he produced a jazz musical and appeared in the film All Night Long, which also starred Patrick McGoohan (later to become famous for his roles in Danger Man and the Prisoner). As a Patrick McGoohan fan, this is one I will be checking out.

Compared to other magazines of the era, the advertisements in Jazz Journal are all very serious, as can be seen in this advertisement for a glorified record player.
