Abstract

Early last year, Tasmania lost one of its doyens of jazz; Max Gourlay. A pioneer of the Tasmanian jazz scene for over seven and a half decades. Max was born 14 August 1926 in Launceston. At the age of nine, he started formal violin lessons with Lynda Sheen. A quick learner, his first performance was soon after at the Theatre Royal in Hobart at the age of ten. By the age of fifteen, he had begun playing professionally for fundraising concerts for the Second World War effort.
