Ol'Man River - Climax Jazz Band 1981.
It was in 1981, about 10 years after our band was created. We had a large, devoted following not only across Canada, but also in the United States and Europe. We represented Canada at jazz festivals in Sacramento, New Orleans, Denver and Boston and appeared at most of the big jazz clubs in the U.S. In 1982 we performed at the Edinburgh Jazz festival. At home in Toronto we played regularily at Malloney's , a comfortable, cosy wooden - beamed bar, the first in town licensed with a stand-up bar with more people standing than sitting when we made these recordings. The atmosphere was electric and the house was packed. I have chosen on of my favourite tunes from this album. Ol' Man River is an old standard and I'm always reminded by that 1928 recording of Bix Beiderbecke. These old 78's (Bix) and also the newer LP's (the track here on Youtube) are virtually forgotten. I like to bring this back. Hope you like it as much as we did when we made it.
In the band: Bob Erwig cornet, Ian Arnott clarinet, Len Gosling trombone, Jack Vicken banjo, Chris Daniels bass and Max Littlejohns drums
