MANY THANKS TO NEW ORLEANS DELIGHT " BANDLEADER KJELD BRANDT FOR PROVIDING PERMISSION FOR THIS VIDEO CLIP TO BE MADE PUBLIC.
Cliff "Kid" Bastien died on February 8th 2003. On Sunday December 1st 2002, Just a few weeks before his untimely death, this highly nostalgic video was recorded by Holger Bach at the Sorgenfri Kirke, near Copenhagen. I have just dubbed in the sound track from the CD recording, to replace the original submission
Cliff really enjoyed himself on his tour with Kjeld Brandt's "New Orleans Delight" and playing at venues in Denmark & Sweden. It was a tremendous lift for Cliff to be re-united with his old friend and fellow-Brit' reedman George Berry. Cliff detested flying and there is little doubt that George Berry joining the tour was one of the things that made him overcome his fear and agree to make the trip. Cliff and George had formed his first "Kid" Thomas style band together. It was called "The Camelia Band" and they started the tradition of Saturday jazz at Grossman's Tavern in Toronto way back in May 1970. If you do a Youtube search on "Eh La Bas" you will see a tiny but precious cut of about 70 seconds of the Camelia band playing in Grossmans, just weeks after it first started! The authentic old New Orleans style of "New Orleans Delight" was a natural for both guests. Full support is provided by Kjeld Brandt - clarinet; Bengt Hansson - trombone; Goran Magnusson - piano; Erling Lindhardt - banjo; Stefan Karfve - bass and Claus Lindhardt -drums. This spiritual, "Take Your Burden To The Lord shows Cliff in full swing. Hs vocal style and delivery were irresistable and always left one feeling uplifted and happy! I will be thinking of Cliff this weekend (originally written February 1st 2010) when his memory will be commemorated by a special Happy Pals session at his beloved Grossmans Tavern This concert is available on "Music Mecca CD 4069-2 - a beautiful production in high fidelity sound too. Details are available at the band web site www.new-orleans-delight.dk Check it out!
