Jazz Times, the monthly which suspended publication in May, has been bought by Madavor Media and will print an August issue produced by its familiar staff and contributors, according to today’s New York Times. Boston-based Madavor counts International Figure Skating, Volleyball and The Best of Northeast Golf among its “core titles,” having acquired Doll, a long-established UK collector’s periodical, in June 2008 and four regionally-oriented golf titles last September.
Self-described as an “enthusiast publishing firm,” Madavor was founded in 2004 by Jeffrey C. Wolk and is listed as a subsidiary of Zilpin Group LLC, publishing consultants. “The Power of Passion. The Energy of Enthusiasm” is Madavor’s motto, derived from the translation of the Sanskrit word after which it’s named. The company’s web-site states
Madavor offers unique ways to communicate with focused, enthusiastic consumers who are eager to learn more about products and events that support their interests.
