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.”
