Wax Poetics is a quarterly journal focused on the African American musical tradition, from R&B and jazz to disco and hip-hop, with a look at all other funky music worldwide. With fifty issues in its ten-year history, Wax Poetics has profiled world-famous icons like Miles Davis, Dilla, James Brown, Herbie Hancock, Michael Jackson, Barry White, Ice Cube, Erykah Badu, Public Enemy, and Smokey Robinson, and has championed lesser-known musicians and crucial scenes like Detroit’s techno explosion and Memphis’s soul stew. Each issue is packed full of content—historical retrospectives on classic musicians as well as new and up-and-coming artists—and vintage photographs rarely seen elsewhere. Once known as a bible for record collectors, Wax Poetics has grown into a real force in both the publishing and music industries, capturing worldwide audiences whose thirst for musical knowledge is insatiable.
