Careless Love - Society Four 1999.
Pee Wee Russell, or maybe even Frank Teschemacher, might have liked this. An original approach on clarinet as well on altosax make me enjoy this artist. Yes......... it’s Simon Stribling.
Just a few months before this session, trumpeter, trombonist, tubaist and player of all reed instruments had moved from Australia to settle in Canada in the Vancouver area. It was my luck to meet this young man and for several years we worked together on music, websites and our Webofjazz.
It was on a grey weekday morning in September 1999 in the jazz club on Main Street in Vancouver. We had a rehearsal/recording session organized with our newly formed Society Four.
We invited Jim Marsh on banjo. We had our regular bassist Paul Bergman and I played the cornet. Now it feels as if it has just happened and then to think that it was more than 10 years ago. Where does time go. From a shelf in the basement, I can now share these with you via iTunes.
