Jazz Notes is no longer aired on ABC Jazz after airing for so many years, but equally it has left many impressive memories for years to come. This show truly showcased the best of Australian jazz with a lot of skill. Often there were original and new recordings, from the ABC studios. Oh, those where good wednesday mornings.. Recently I was feeling a bit nostalgic and found a recording of the theatre program from last year.. and I started to feel the roots of jazz-deliciousness! Best, Patricia. --"Let's take care of each other".

Relaxing after a good dinner, suddenly to my great joy and surprise I manage to connect to good old Aussie land, on my computer in Goteborg Sweden, I lived in Sydney during eight great years I am so fond of you all, Came 1965 into a pub I smoked at the time asked my Aussie bloke on the right. "Excuse me where is the ash tray"?Moments of waiting for his reply............., "Your are standing in it" Thank´s for good music it inspires me to hear and remember. One of many Swedes

Hi Ivan,
My name is David Phillips, I am a full time double bassist with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, and have recently collaborated with some of Adelaide's finest musicians to create an album of original contemporary jazz. The band is called Bottleneck and our debut album is called 'Diversions'. We are really proud of it and would like to send you a copy with the hope that you will like it and play it on your show. Could you please let me know who and where I should send a copy to.
Kind Regards
