If you’re shopping for gifts this holiday season, DownBeat has got you covered with our 2019 Holiday Gift Guide.

We’ve got articles on vinyl releases, archival recordings and musical gear/accessories. Plus, our Yuletide Music Roundup shines a spotlight on the best holiday albums of 2019.

Check out our features on the new Blue Note documentary, a batch of blues box sets, some early work by Nat “King” Cole, Miles Davis’ nonet, Erroll Garner reissues, late-period Art Pepper and a Stevie Ray Vaughan biography.

Keep in mind that many independent record shops do not sell out of all their Record Store Day inventory on Black Friday. So, stop by your local shop to see if it has any goodies left from RSD Black Friday. Our preview also provides a Top 10 list of the best releases for Record Store Day Black Friday.

Additionally, DownBeat makes the perfect gift for anyone who loves jazz. We’ve got great deals on subscriptions, whether you want to read DownBeat in print, online or on your tablet. And don’t forget to sign up for our monthly newsletter.
