We would like to pay special tribute to the following organisations and individuals who, in a variety of ways, gave us special support and publicity.In fact the wholehearted way in which so many people went out of their way to help is a sure indication of good feelings stimulated by jazz.We thank the, Down Beat, Jazz News, Jazz Report, The Cat’s Meow, Records Inc., The Traditional Jazz Club of Montreal, George H Buck Jnr of G.H.B. and Jazzology Records, Helen McNamara of the Toronto Telegram, Carroll Hardy of radio station WEBR and Pat Halcox of the Chris Barber band.
Now, it’s time for us to get back to work and we hope that the coming months will provide you with accurate and stimulating reading.For a clearer idea of our aims and ideals in the magazine we would ask you to turn the page.
