Featuring a new website Jazz Ramble which has been added to the sidebar links to the right….
“My name is Jane La Scala. I’m a retired librarian and jazz fan (fanatic, freak, whatever), living in Melbourne, Australia.
Jazz Ramble is about Australian traditional jazz – those who made it or are currently making it, their music, the “second liners” or serious followers and supporters of jazz in this country, the venues where you can hear live jazz played, where you can buy recordings, and jazz clubs for getting together to enjoy jazz in the company of people who share your obsession. Along the way there will be rambles into the roots and other flowerings of jazz, both where it all began in America, and how it has developed in Australia.”

Friday night at the Harmonie Club Narrabundah is worth checking out.
Last night we saw a wonderful show, Blues Piano Night with Wayne Kelly, Leo Vincent, John Black and Ross Buchanan, all on two keyboards, alone, in duos and all four together. All four obviously enjoyed the fun as did the very enthusiastic audience.
The music included numbers from John Coltrane, Ray Charles, Billy Joel, Charlie Mingus and Big Bill Broonzy and a couple of John Black originals.
The free music presented by Lone Wolf Promotions, began at 8pm and we were made very welcome by a lot of friendly people.
Another live music venue worth checking out! (and the television screens were turned off for the show)
