A very hard to find back issue of Metronome with cool content. Especially nice if you're a fan of the suave bandleader, Larry Clinton.

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 history book or memoir could ever do.

Magazine is in nearly Very Good condition, complete and intact. There is spine wear and the center page is loose with some tearing on the fore edge. 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!
