Diana Allen OAM

Great to see in today’s newspapers  the award of the Order Of Australia Medal to Diana Allen ” For services to Jazz Music “.  For over thirty years Diana and her organisation Jazz Australia have presented the cream of Australian and International traditional and mainstream jazz musicians at luncheon venues throughout Victoria.  The musicians who appeared under the Jazz Australia banner  represent a ” Who’s Who ” of the jazz world and Diana set the benchmark for the presentation of live jazz in comfortable settings for musicians and audiences with the support of excellent sound and lighting.  In semi-retirement Diana continues to present regular jazz performances on the Bellarine Peninsula of Victoria. A well deserved honour for Diana and for Australian jazz.
