Hello Jack

A good point and one that raises a fundamental question - can jazz be 
more than performance?

If so, what? Are jazz recordings musicological "texts", in the way 
classical music scores are? The question may be irrelevant and/or too hard.

All the best for the new year,

What chance is there when the various Conservatorium jazz courses don't 
even talk about the jazz scene in America in the twenties, let alone the 
history of Australian jazz.
