Loretta Barnard and her partner John, visited the Museum today at the same time that Muscovite and jazz student, Alexandra Block, came to seek information on early Australian jazz for her Ph.D.  Both visitors went away most impressed with Loretta commenting, “What a day we had at the Australian Jazz Museum. Such a towering achievement from a small, dedicated group of volunteers. The collection is truly inspiring and John and I were struck by your professionalism and passion.”
