Subject: A question from Turkey

Dear Brother,

I am a brother from Turkish lodge Delta (number 29).

I am going to write an article about jazz and freemasonary, in what respects there are similarities, relations, discrepancies etc. I am a great fan of jazz music and also an amateur jazz writer.

My master instructed me to write about this subject and I need some help.

Are there any brothers among jazz musicians, or are there masons in jazz world, like producers, composers. I am sure there are many. This subject have never been touched in Turkey and I will be the first brother to do that.

I have a lot of information about both topics but separately. I need some articles, ideas, books to bridge them.

I will be very happy to hear from our fellow brothers if they may help me.

I need this information latest till April 7th 2000.

Best Regards

Tuncel Gulsoy
