On the letterhead of Promo-Press, Marc Danval's public relations company. Danval addresses his colleagues, forwarding a copy of a letter addressed to Pierre Arty, managing director of Exploration du monde and the Association des arts et de la culture (ADAC) at the Palais des beaux-arts in Brussels. Danval mentions a major jazz event to be held on November 1, 2 and 3, 1970, for which "ten days before the first concert, not a single jazz fan (underlined) has been personally affected". Danval complains bitterly to Arty about the poor organization of Jazz concerts at Les Beaux-Arts: "failure of the Stan Getz concert (appalling acoustics), half a hall for the Clark Boland concert (scandalous lack of promotion)..."
