Czechia / Czechoslovakia

Unijazz is an association that operates under this name since 1987 and is one of the successors of former Jazz Section. Since 1991 Unijazz is publishing an uncommercial monthly magazine UNI, which is oriented mostly on young, more particular readers. Music, mostly rock, jazz and contemporary (music) makes more than an half of its content. It also contains reviews of new CDs released in Czech Republic and abroad. (Unijazz )
Until 8/2014 UNI was monochrome publication with atypical page format. Since 9/2014 is UNI a common glossy color magazine.
The very first "zero" issue of UNI appeared in June 1990. It was the redistribution of the samizdat fanzine Za 2 Piva (For two beers), issue 57. Later editors of Za 2 Piva merged with UNI edition. Za 2 Piva was one of the most important publications of the fanzine-era in Czechoslovakia. BTW, its issue numbering was descending from 66, published in 1988.
