In presenting this series, the producers of JAZZNOTE hope to preserve for the future, recorded examples of the music played by recognised established jazz groups during this decade.

It is our aim to eventually encompass all styles of jazz and blues as played throughout Australia.

Despite the limited opportunities available and its relatively small population, Australia enjoys a world-wide reputation as a strong-hold for jazz and, indeed, in the years to come might well become one of the leaders in this field.

We sincerely hope that this cross-sectional cover of the development of Australian Jazz over this period will be a worthwhile contribution to the history of the music in this country.
