Someday You’ll be Sorry - Mike and his Gang 1994
Our good friend and guitarist/banjoist Mike Warmsley works as a surgeon at the Mississauga Hospital in Ontario, Canada. He arranged for a coffee break performance in the staff lunch room. Together with Mike we organized a nice little session group. Allistair Lawrie, a editor of Toronto’s Globe and Mail made himself available. Al. originally from Edinbrough is a devotee of the Benny Goodman style of playing. A retired bank executive from London England who had emigrated to Canada, Terry Pitts, played trombone. In his earlier days Terry was the trombonist of the famous Sy Laurie Jazz Band from London. A visitor to Canada, Graham Scriven on drums lives in Egland and next to professional drumming hosts local jazz radio shows. Chris Daniels, originally from the Liverpool area is the bassist of our Climax Jazz Band. Mike, originally from London as well, and myself being a former Dutchman makes this a typical Canadian Band.
The camera man was an acrobat. He crawled anywhere and filmed without loosing a beat from underneath, sideways, closeup end so on.
Hope you enjoy this freewheeling little early morning session, not usually the place where jazz musicians are most comfortable.
