BELL JAZZ LECTURES

The  Doubly Gifted  Committee and  Waverley  Library named  this lecture series  on jazz the Bell Jazz Lectures, in  honour of Graeme Bell's outstanding contribution to jazz in  Australia and abroad  over  the previous 50 years.   He was an outstanding pianist, excellent band  leader, and composer of note, who died on June 13, 2012. Graeme was also  a talented artist who  exhibited in the Doubly Gifted exhibitions of visual art works by jazz musicians, as well as contributing to other  exhibitions. The series began in 1993 and concluded in 2014. Read these lectures also at www.waverley.nsw.gov.au/services/library/reference_library/doubly_gifted_annual_bell_jazz_lectures
