Drummer Len Barnard, who died late last year, has been awarded an Order of Australia in the Queen's Birthday honours.
He received the honour - Member (AM) in the General Division - for service to jazz music, to improving the professionalism of Australian jazz music, and to the encouragement of young musicians.
