ALL artists!  I am very, VERY happy to announce that IMPROVIJAZZATION NATION is ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS again.  I have been granted a (possibly long-term) stay of execution for my trip to Iraq.  I will still  be traveling all over the U.S., so new issues may be a little less timely, but (as always), we will review your materials as soon as possible after we receive them.  Look at the guidelines for submission below, please:


MUSIC:  All formats accepted.  Snail mail to:  Zzaj Productions, c/o Dick Metcalf, 95-1107 Hookupu Street, Mililani, HI 96789  The only criteria for music you submit is that it MUST HAVE high performance energy... if you submit lacklustre material, it will be reviewed accordingly

POETRY:  Poems are accepted for publication ONLY via e-mail.  Poems submitted in any other fashion will NOT be published.  Poetry that includes some reference to music is granted first priority for publication.

BOOKS:  We will review some books; books about music are PREFERRED.  We will NOT return any books submitted for review.  Snail them to the address listed above for MUSIC.

Please continue to help us by spreading the word about this magazine.  We have been writing this magazine since 1990, but it's only because of your energy that we are able to keep it going!  I'm still a firm believer in the power of music to overcome the idiocies that run rampant in the world today!

Send all your review material to us at our new address:

Zzaj Productions, c/o Dick Metcalf, 95-1107 Hookupu Street, Mililani, HI 96789
