Phil Nimmons

Phil Nimmons is thought of as a Toronto musician, but he was raised in Vancouver, so that's gotta count for something. If any of you can fill in the line-up, please add them to the comments section and I'll get around to amending this write-up with the relevant information. Meanwhile, enjoy three clips from Nimmons 'n' Nine Plus Six (d0n't you hate it when you have to do basic math? But you gotta admit it sounds better than Nimmons 'n' Eight Plus Seven or Nimmons 'n' Nineteen Minus Three). The first tune is called Bird Burger:

Next one that was too long for YouTube. It weighs in at a hefty 11:41 and is named The Silver, the second movement from a suite for the Olympics. Could this be from 1976 or thereabouts? Probably.

And finally a tune called Think Nice Thoughts:
