Dinah – Climax Jazz Band 1996
Climax Jazz Band in Japan
I have been a member of the Climax Jazz Band almost from it's beginning in 1971. We lived and operated out of Toronto, Canada.
In 1996 we were invited to come to Japan to perform a number of concerts. We had large audiences, 5000-8000 per concert.
In this tune we feature a vocal by out trombonist Len Gosling. Len originates from London, England and was very much influenced by Acker Bilk’s trombonist John Mortimer. It even shows in the way he performs his vocal.
Next to me (Bob Erwig) on cornet we had Pieter Meijers on soprano sax, Len Gosling on trombone, Jack Vincken on banjo, Randy Morris piano, Chris Daniels bass and Jamie Aug drums.
