The Jazzart Label was the creation of Melbourne’s Bob Clemens who was best known as a music store proprietor and entrepreneur, responsible for organising the famous Melbourne Town Hall Downbeat concerts.Aware that Australian jazz musicians were not being recorded to any large extent by the big record companies, Bob launched his ambitious and successful recording enterprise. Beginning in February 1948 there were a total of forty-two 78rpm discs and three LPs produced over the following five years. Because of the limited distribution that these discs had, today many are quite rare indeed.The AJM has released five volumes of Jazzart recordings and you can find them in our shop.https://www.ajm.org.au/?post_type=productHere is a link to an informative and entertaining audio presentation on the Jazzart story , produced and narrated by the AJMs audio engineer Ken Simpson Bull. ️🕵️️https://www.ajm.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2022/10/jazzart-1.mp3#jazz #australianjazz #australianjazzmuseum #jazzart ##bobclemens #history #art #culture #vintagemelbourney
