1. WELCOME TO JAZZ SA INC NEWSLETTER, 17/07/07

What a great concert on Sunday night with Dave McEvoy & co presenting THE MUSIC
OF HERBIE HANCOCK. For their last item they even played a piece that everyone
new. Not that it mattered, it was all well received. Chris Braham from Jazz
Action Society won the draw for the bottle of red as a Jazz Series Subscriber.
Chris is one of the new hard working people at Jazz Action this year and their
next concert is next Sunday night. See the item on CHRISTIAN BUCHER below.

Mike Stewart announced Jazz SA's next concert on August 5, HARD YARDS featuring
ROB EYERS drums. More next item. Our Concert Series 2 artwork is nearly
finalised and will be distributed and on the web soon at
http://www.jazz.adelaide.onau.net.au/jazzcord.htm.

One other great concert last weekend was Jan Preston playing Boogie Woogie
piano. The small audience really made her welcome and her stories along with her
pieces (without any music) was just wonderful. Jan's website is
http://www.janpreston.com - she has written a show on the life and music of
Winifred Attwell, hopefully the Adelaide Cabaret Festival will pick her up for
2008. The next time you watch Australian Story on ABC, listen to the music, Jan
wrote it!

5. ORSZACZKY ON ABC RADIO NATIONAL

A Musicians’ Musician – Jackie Orszaczky, has long been an inspiration to
Australian musicians and audiences.

This radio feature outlines the huge influence that Jackie Orszaczky has had on
the Australian music scene. Many musical colleagues of Jack’s (including Hamish
Stuart, James Greening, Marcia Hines, Chris Abrahams, Tina Harrod and many
more), pay tribute to this outstanding bass player, singer, composer, arranger
and band leader, who’s been working in Australia for the past 35 years and has
been the driving force behind some of the finest soul, funk and r & b music
created in this country.

He's been described as "one of the most astute deliverers of soul music in
Australia", as "the musician's musician" and as "the coolest man in Sydney' and
all of these descriptions are right on the mark. This program looks at the range
and influence of Jack and his music in the Australian music scene.

7. BIG BAND BONANZA AT THE TOP ROOM

Two Adelaide big bands and a rock band, will provide the musical entertainment
at a cabaret in the ARKABA HOTEL‘S TOP ROOM on Sunday, July 22. The big bands
are the ROYAL AUSTRALIAN ARMY BAND (SA Detachment) and SALT AND PEPPER SWING,
and the rock band is RIP IT UP.

Also on the bill will be Australia’s first Go-Go girl, PAT (BIG PRETZEL)
KENNEDY who will be performing a comedy segment. Local Country Rock identity,
CAROLE STURTZEL, will compere the show, which will run from 3.00 pm to 7.00 pm.

The fundraising cabaret has been organized by the voluntary, not-for-profit
MUSIC HISTORY HUNTERS, whose charter is to research the history of popular music
in South Australia and create an interactive website identifying people who have
made a significant contribution to the music and entertainment industries in the
State.

The group has the support of the State Library of South Australia. As Music
History Hunters is a voluntary organisation, all monies raised in such cabarets
go one-hundred percent towards expenses in conducting the research, which
eventually will become an interesting archive for public access at the State
Library.

The Royal Australian Navy Band SA, under Bandmaster Chief Petty Officer Doug
Antonoff, is a 12-piece group that plays many varied styles of music, including
swing , rock and easy listening, and features three vocalists – Rory McKinnon,
Lanie Jamieson and Clayton Pschirn.

Salt and Pepper Swing is a 15-piece group, five saxophones, three trumpets,
three trombones, guitars and piano, bass and drums. Organiser of the group is
saxophonist Dr. Graham Mussared, while other saxophonists are Sylvan (Schmoe)
Elhay, Gabriel Chamah, David Brooks and Andrew Craigo. Members of the trumpet
section are Daryl Pope, son of former Our Thing big band, Jack Pope, Eddy Davis
and Warren Heading, two of the new generation of musicians who have been taken
under the wing of the older players.

Trombonists are Dave Winnall, who is the tutor of the highly regarded
Marryatville High School Band, Cheryl Pope, the talented daughter of Jack Pope
and Gareth Davis, a younger generation musician.

Stuart Niven is on piano, Sandy Close, whose father Rollo ran the Wonderland
Ballroom for many years, is on bass, Mike Bevan is on guitar and the drummer is
Yuri Markov, who also will be playing in the Royal Australian Navy Band at the
cabaret.

Members of the rock Band Rip It Up have many years’ experience between them,
though leader and lead vocalist of the group, Jack McGuire is considered the
baby of the group, with only 12 years experience .

Pianist Barry Barreau has been around since the mid-50s and has backed many rock
and roll stars, including Johnny O’Keefe. He was an original member of the Mark
Five at Norwood Ballroom and had many years with the band Happy Daze.

Lead guitar Steve King started playing in the 70s and now spends his days in his
business of piano tuning, tutoring and entertaining. David Brookes, who plays
saxophone and flute; is also a member of the Salt and Pepper swing band; Graham
Bettany, a former member of Farenheight 451 is on bass and Aldo DiSario,
formerly of the Cruze Brothers, and now a Bachelor of Music and teaching at
Adelaide University, is on drums.

In her comedy segment, Pat Kennedy will be back by Alan Hewitt on piano, and her
husband, Laurie Kennedy, on drums.

Tickets to the July 22 cabaret are $20 a head, plus booking fee, through
Dramatix, or at the door on the day.
