Bert Niosi Sextette
Musicana 78

Here is some rare early Canadian jazz on a Musicana 78 rpm, recorded in Toronto circa 1947. Great stuff.

Bobby Gimby, the trumpet player, went on to write the 1967 hit CA-NA-DA! ("One little two little three Canadians…")

On the July 1/06 show, we send this tune out to Bobby Gimby’s daughter, Lynn, who sent a nice e-mail after finding this label on www.royforbes.ca.
