Jazz music of Australia is of course based on the Afro-American tradition which is said to have originated in New Orleans, USA around 1917.
Australian jazz musicians, like Don Burrows and James Morrison continue to attract significant music sales and audience support while artists like alto saxophonists Berne McGann, pianist Mike Nock and saxophonist Dale Barlow are all achievers on the world stage.
Australian musicians today perform right across the range of genres, or styles and have achieved international recognition with their unique Australian approach.
As time goes on our artists and performers will persist in developing that unique approach and continue to achieve recognition by the world audience for the music of Australia.
