Hi Jimmy, appreciate your feedback.

Some might say that they are only one track away from something they really like, rather than potentially 1hr away (in the case of genre-based shows). Many really enjoy the variety of styles/segues on ABC Jazz.

As you say, everyone is different. We hope there's something to enjoy in our programming, and thanks again for your thoughts!

Oh, by the way, how do I communicate this to "Il Capo", rather than just throw this at whoever chances to see it?

OK. Everyone likes different stuff. What annoys me is that the jazz program plays a few minutes singing, a few minutes guitar, a few minutes New Age bebop, a few minutes Parker. a few minutes this, a few minutes that. What about a full hour of each genre so that we know when we have something decent to listen to according to taste. This switching about all the time means I turn OFF. Permanently.

Hi Peter, no news of Kenny Werner gigs on this visit unfortunately. We'll keep an ear out though, thanks for making contact.

I've heard on the grapevine that Kenny Werner will be in Sydney for a non-jazz function on 19th April (and maybe 13th as well). Anyone know if he's doing any jazz shows while he's there?

Hi Graham,
Thanks for your feedback. We certainly have a few 'shows' during the week, lasting up to 2hrs, some that venture outside the musical material in our regular playlist. We're glad to have this variety in programming, I'm sure you appreciate the large range in styles that are (or are informed by) Jazz.
All the best, keep in touch,
ABC Jazz.

It is Monday night at 10'30. What is the absolute rubbish you are playing. How to absolutely annoy and turn off your audience. I Thu.k you said Wolfmother. Stop wrecking the ABC Jazz station. Just play decent Jazz, and stop being so inconsiderate.

Hi Gerry,
I am Pete Dyer, Myke Dyer's son. My father has an extensive jazz collection and it is now time to see if I can put into a new home. There are approximately 3000 LP's. Ranging from the mid fifties to early seventies. Just wondering if anyone is interested in them?
Regards
Pete

Hi Gerry,

Your definition of improvised music seems to exclude jazz. Tonight, 04 November, is a good example.

Hi Gerry
Would really love to hear some Ruslan Sirota 'sister moon' played... Any chance of hearing this wonderful grammy award winning jazz pianist?

Hello Gerry,
I'll certainly be listening in to the Mingus presentation this week on Jazz Up Late. Mingus didn't merely play the bass, he pumped his soul into it! Not for him were showy runs or pretentious theatricalism. Mingus always 'said something' reverberating in his heart. A superb leader and thinker was Mingus. Furthermore, to me this man remains one of America's foremost composers. Thankyou Gerry.

Hi Gerry,
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
David
