JAZZ CO-ORDINATION

This section includes articles that throw light on  “jazz co-ordination”. Jazz co-ordination was devised by the Australia Council, the Australian Government's arts funding and advisory body, in the early 1980s to increase government support for jazz. Part-time jazz co-ordinators in all states were appointed in 1983. Most State arts ministries subsequently provided funds for jazz coordination programs.
