      Thanks for your comment – I know where you are coming from – but I attended a gig at Paris Cat at 8.30 on Tuesday, and it still managed to attract around 30 in the audience. The Jam Sessions each Sunday get 50 – 70 people in The Post Hotel, whereas they previously had perhaps 10 people in there all afternoon. As a general principle, the jammers like playing in front of plenty of audience – who doesn’t? I think there is plenty of scope for improvement, but I think Melbourne has a fairly active music scene generally, just jazz needs to market itself a bit better.

      Cheers
