This is just a feeling. This is just an action. This is just.

“If the music was changing, why wasn’t the format of the jazz magazine shifting around?” Straight from the mind of polymath musician/artist Jason Moran comes a new kind of music publication. Looking at jazz culture from an African American perspective, LOOP features the voices of Moran, his friends, family, and collaborators, including Matana Roberts, Kendrick Scott, Jamaaladeen Tacuma, Greg Tate, and Cassandra Wilson, among others. In cooperation with the artist and Luhring Augustine, the Walker Art Center is honored to host LOOP—its inaugural issue, originally published in 2016, and all future ones—in digital form right here on Walker Reader.
