Nice, scarce older back issue of Metronome with bandlader Russ Morgan on the cover. Not as many photos as later issues, but the article and review content more than makes up for it. Also there is an architect's sketch of the (the) new Larchmont Casino .

Back issues of Metronome magazine from this era are rare and cherished by Big Band collectors. Packed with news, photos articles and ads about everyone who was anyone, and nearly anything that related to big band, jazz and swing music. This oversized 9.5" x 12.5" vintage music magazine gives you much more about what was really happening in music during the era than any music history book or memoir could ever do.

Magazine is in Good condition. Spine wear as expected, cover loose from the staples but not separated, a little creasing on the lower front cover edge. A small closed tear on the back cover edge (middle). If you're a big band fan and you never owned a copy of Metronome, you're in for a treat. You WILL be amazed!
