    St Philip's Street Breakdown Mason Rod 1987
    For a German TV jazz broadcast in 1987 we see the clarinettist of Rod Mason's Hot Five playing the George Lewis classic St. Philip Street Breakdown. Engelbert Wrobel doesn't copy the George Lewis version much, he sets his own style end does some interesting stuff together with the sousaphone player.
    For this concert Rod Mason had one of Britain's best stride pianists with him. Too bad that Ray Smith didn't play a solo.
