1978 - 1980
Personnel: Graham Parker - trombone, Doug Burnley - cornet, John Charles - clarinet & leader,

I played cornet with the "Excelsior Jazz Band" in Toronto,Ontario,from 1977 to 1980. Toronto was enjoying a resurgence in traditional & dixieland jazz during the late 70's and at least 10 bands were playing on a regular basis.
