Vale CJC Life Member, John Sharpe

Sadly, we advise that CJC Life Member, musician and jazz historian, John Sharpe, passed away peacefully on Wednesday 12th after a valiant two week battle in hospital. As many of you would know, John had struggled with a series of health issues following a stroke some two years ago and this latest battle was one he could not overcome.

2018 Jazz Cruise details

Dear CJC members

Diana Allen of Jazz Australia is organising her second jazz cruise and she has sent along information should any of us be interested. This cruise has just been released so she is advising people to book early.

Join Jazz Australia’s AUTUMN JAZZ CRUISE to the WHITSUNDAY ISLANDS and GREAT BARRIER REEF on the Sea Princess, April 21st – May 1st, 2018 from Sydney to Sydney.

Experience more than one of the great jazz cornet legends in history – not only Bob Barnard but Jim Cullum from the USA. Plus Stevenson’s Rockets Swing Quartet from Melbourne – Jo Stevenson, reeds; Stephen Grant, piano; Chris Ludowyk, bass & trombone; and Ian Smith, drums, washboard & vocals.

The allocation of cabins for Jazz Australia bookings is limited so Diana is urging people to move quickly to avoid disappointment.

Please see the attached flyer for more information.
