Great mag for UK jazz fans.
Of the jazz community, for the jazz community. I appreciate being treated as more than a customer - as a fellow enthusiast.
Having used them in the past, when I thought their postal charges were a little too high, I find them now a pleasure to deal with. A rapid response resulted in me having the book in a couple of days after placing the order.
Service rating : I was having difficulties placing my order via Jazzwise's website, something to do with my address or postcode, when after only a few minutes, my phone rang, and it was one of Jazzwise's helpful and happy chaps!!!!! He said he noticed my order attempts, and proceeded to take my order over the phone instead. He said that he would investigate and attempt to fix the problem. The book I ordered arrived the next day, even before they had sent the parcel dispatched notification/confirmation email.Product rating : This book is part of the recommended course material required on the RACC Intermediate Jazz Guitar course. It's very good. You can't get it from anywhere else other than the USA.
So far so good.
The website is informative and easy to navigate. The range of stock is huge.05-Nov-2012Service rating : The website is informative and easy to navigate. The range of products available is hugeProduct rating : This book is more or less essential to anyone learning the saxophone, although the writing is sometimes clumsy and some of the physiology is dubious. It is however the only publication I have come across which provides detailed information and practical help about breath control, use of the larynx, embouchure and tongue positions. Everything you need to know about how to improve the way you blow the thing.
Service rating : My product was delivered very quickly. There is a large selection of products to choose from.Product rating : Great book to learn usable guitar chord voicings. The chord boxes are quite small so a little bit hard to see but it's a very useful book
I messed up an internet order and had to phone instead. A VERY helpful chap sorted things out for me and the item was delivered the next day. Excellent service.
Excellent range and very good service. Shipping charges a bit steep compared to, say, Chappells.
Service rating : Excellent service, next day delivery!Product rating : As a shop, we obtained the book for a customer
An excellent and rapid service.
Ordered software which came promptly.
Service rating : Wish list :
" at the end of this material you should be able to ...
Play 3 jazz standard chord progressions all moveable shapes.
Write down the structure in AA B A sequence with USA chord notation
Transfer one of those chord progressions to a similar tune in AA B A.
Pre-requisites ...? What do I know.
Oh I fnally maybe have found in recent order : "All the shapes you are" + Herb Ellis
Its frustrating from all sources to learn guitar jazz or other. You can only look at the cover and give it a go. None have a real get started even though you cant read.
Can never give JW less than good because they are such nice people.
Not sure why same order delivered in two separate packages
PhilProduct rating : lets see. Looks best I've seen.
An excellent and helpful organisation
Service rating : A great site, with a pleasingly large range of products available.Product rating : I bought this book solely for The Sweet Time Suite, as it was advertised as including the full score for this work. However, only parts 1-4 are included, and not the final three movements, which was a great disappointment. Customers should be made aware that only the first four parts are included in the book to avoid any further disgruntlement.
Excellent array of products and services.
Really good range of books and very helpful staff...have been having problems with website orders to Jersey CI
fast and reliable, I hope that your offering continues to grow
Overall it is a well written and informative magazine
Service rating : have previously subscribed to magazine so used site principally to renew subscriptionProduct rating : Very happy to renew subscription. However not so happy to have to pay Royal Mail £1.50 because the magazine did not have sufficient postage (-50p) which also (greedily) incurred a "Handling Charge" of £1.
Have emailed Jazzwise but to date have received no reply and I will be really less than happy if they do not bother to reply
They had the product I was looking for. Good value and excellent delivery service.
Service rating : the mag is excellent.i like the cd revues.some very good articlesalthough some are a bit pretensious as they seem to be for musicians which i am notProduct rating : not a musician so ihave not bought any
Service rating : The magazine's CD reviews are indispensable to this collectorProduct rating : Has always worked effciciently
Ultra fast and precise! Very good service, will surely buy again!
lacks up to content on gigs and reviews
Service rating : Excellent magazine which provides hours of enjoyment. Well written and well organised. Price seems appropriate as this magazine is well printed with many colour photos. Provides an excellent view of what's happening in (mainly) modern jazz in the UK today, and through interviews, photographs & articles, the latest in Europe and the USA. Makes me feel 'in touch' with developments in jazz. Prompt reviews of the latest recordings on release in the UK. Good range of reviewers with a wide range of taste & experience in the music.
Not sure about 'The Colonel' and 'Art Failure' features - appear out-of-place in this magazine's style.
Particularly enjoy the 'Taking Off', 'Turning Point', 'The Player', and 'Books/DVD- Live reviews', 'Gigs guide' 'Charting the Jazz Message CD/LP listings' and 'Letters' pages. All part of what is the magazine's strongest point - Jazz is ALIVE and kicking ! and it smells good ! (Sorry, Frank). I look forward to its arrival every month.Product rating : Firstclass service. Very helpful on phone.
FINE INFORMATIVE MAGAZINE. GREAT ARTICLES. USEFUL CRITICISM
Service was first class. Ordered one day, book arrived next day as promised. Prices excellent. Will certainly use them again.
Service rating : A unique and highly valuable organisationProduct rating : Great magazine, articles and reviews are spot on. I didn't give an "excellent" rating for the following reasons: letters page is superfluous, and the letters usually just boring rants; the Colonel feature is unfunny, & detracts from overall tone; the listings pages are badly laid out, can't find anything easily. You could just drop all these and use the space for more interesting features.
As usual, the books arrived in no time at all, in perfect order. First class outfit.
They provide me with a service which is indespensible. I study jazz, I do not have a personal tutor so jazzwise is my main source of information and help.
The range of study materials Jazzwise provide for all instruments is impressive. I have also received intelligent suggestions from staff members when I asked for an opinion on a possible purchase I might make.
I had to wait far too long for the back issue I ordered.
Excellent website, easy to used witht he right quantity of information.
Two tutorials arrived safe and sound, and promptly. Thank you.
Great magazine, great service!
service always good
Service rating : goodProduct rating : the print is over inked, making the smaller symbols difficult to read
An estimable organisation!
Service rating : Well laid out
Easy to follow instructionsProduct rating : Well rounded coverage of the subject, a lot of which I'm not intersted in. However it is a broad subject and is well balanced
Amazingly quick service - very good.
Efficient, accessible. Very good range of merchandise, offering American music books unavailable elsewhere
Service rating : I have been a subscriber for many years - despite the cost.Product rating : I would be very interested in subscribing to a much cheaper, online, full content version.
Service rating : Was forwarded jazzwise link. Very quick, efficient and competitively priced.Product rating : Relatively inexperienced user found some of the chord symbols a bit ambiguous, otherwise very happy.
Service rating : a very good company.Product rating : FOR US WHO HAVE NOT A GOOD EAR I THINK A MORE OBVIOUS "COME IN POINT" ON THE CD WOULD BE VERY HELPFUL. I HAVE BOUGHT SEVERAL PLAY ALONG BOOKS AND ALWAYS HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.
Easy to find what I want
You had a great selection of music which I couldn't find anywhere else and the delivery was really fast!
