Phyllis Marshall - A Lesson in the Blues

I'm going to fire through these in the order they were saved in my hard drive. This one is really stretching the Vancouver angle, but it certainly qualifies on the Vintage front. It's singer Phyllis Marshall, from Ontario, giving us A Lesson in the Blues. She starts out singing with Canadian jazz pioneer Cliff McKay on the soprano sax, then moves over and is accompanied by a Canadian all-star band fronted by Maynard Ferguson, and featuring such Vancouverites as Carse Sneddon on trumpet, Dave Pepper and Dave Robbins on trombone, and Chris Gage on piano. More from this program in upcoming posts, although this is the only clip with Marshall.
