The jazz that was

76 trombones and a street parade... Hundreds of musicians paraded through Lismore to celebrate the Jazz Convention where jazz permeated the city through venues in the CBD over the five days, drawing musos and jazz lovers from all over the country.

Right: These two wags have dressed up like Lismores very own icon of the trombone (and lover of the bad joke) Davey Rankin. The Filthy Rankinettes were part of the street parade that strolled and played through Lismore as part of the 60th Australian Jazz Convention, which was held in that fair burgh between Boxing Day and the new year. The Rankin likeness lies in the wild white hair, the trombone and the generous (large) gut.
