Pure Jazz Magazine and Central Brooklyn Jazz Consortium have had a strong working relationship for nearly two (2) decades. Both companies have a similar start date, share similar mission statements and have maintained a working relationship from their beginnings. Jo Ann Brewster-Cheatham Pure Jazz Magazine’s founder and publisher always pushed for continued support of CBJC. She felt CBJC was one of the foundations PJM was built upon. Jitu Weusi the first chairmen of CBJC said many times “Jo Ann Brewster-Cheatham and her magazine Pure Jazz must be supported; it’s a magazine by us about us.” One of the last things Jo Ann said before her recent transition was to implore her family to continue the relationship robustly. On that note Pure Jazz Magazine has pledged to do its best to continue the relationship by publishing the CBJC Festival Journal renamed CBJC Festival Magazine. The CBJC Festival Magazine is a statement of CBJC from it inception until today. Pure Jazz Magazine has published stories during the years that had an impact on the CBJC membership. A few articles from different eras of the magazine are included in this issue. Please continue your support of Central Brooklyn Jazz Consortium and Pure Jazz Magazine as we try our very best to build on Ms Chatham’s high standards. With Appreciation, Dwight Brewster Interim Managing Director Jo Ann Brewster-Cheatham “Jo Ann Brewster-Cheatham and her magazine Pure Jazz must be supported, it’s a magazine by us about us.” .......
