Ron Collier is another Toronto guy who got his start in Vancouver. Specifically the Kitsilano Boys' Band. Here he is with his quintet in 1959 playing the Norman Symonds' composition, Gently. The quintet features Collier on trombone, Bernie Pilch on alto sax, Ed Bickert on guitar, Carne Bray on bass, and Ron Rully on drums.

  1. Guy,
    This video jazz stuff is incredible! Please email me at so I can ask you some questions. I'm a Montreal jazz musician who is very interested in seeing and hearing more of this treasure!
