The date is February 16th 2002 and the scene is another Saturday matinee at "C'est what?" a popular watering hole in Toronto for traditional jazz for the past 19 years. The Hot Five Jazzmakers are truly hot on this old standard "The Curse of an Aching Heart" It is a reed duet with Janet Shaw on alto sax and guest Steve Mellor, vacationing from England, on clarinet. Sitting in on drums was one of the great characters and New Orleans stylists on the Toronto jazz scene. It is the late Dennis Elder, leader and founder of the Silverleaf jazz band. Hot Five regulars Colin Bray - bass; Reide Kaiser - piano and Rainer Hunck - banjo, along with Dennis on drums, provide the rhythmic platform for the reeds to take off. Trombonist/ldr Brian Towers is off stage, also trumpet man Andrej Saradin and regular drummer Gary Scriven.
Dennis died on April 23 2002, barely two months after this film clip. It is wonderful to see him in such fine form.
We thank Marjetta for bringing her video camera down that day!
Two other numbers from this session have been added to youtube; "Alcoholic Blues" which features a vocal by Dennis and "Linger A While"
