About Us

The Sussex Jazz Magazine is a free online jazz magazine for the Sussex area.

Subscribers receive a pdf copy of the magazine two days before the 1st of each month. It’s free to subscribe and you can sign up here on our website.

All of the articles from the magazine appear on the website, including a regularly updated listings page covering the Sussex region.

SJM was set up in the summer of 2013 by writer and musician Charlie Anderson.

Its first issue was published online in September 2013, originally as a fortnightly publication. From January 2015 it began publishing online as a monthly magazine.

From September 2018 it began printing and distributing across Sussex.

Sussex Jazz Magazine operates as a non-profit organisation with any advertising money going towards the running costs for the website.

A dedicated team of volunteers contribute to the running of the magazine.
