Commonwealth Jazz Club (Series) (1965)

The CBC cooperated with the BBC and Australia's ABC to produce this series of four half-hour performances. Canadians contributed two segments, with radio announcer Phil McKellar as host for both. In one, he introduced the Jimmy Dale Orchestra and the Sonny Greenwich Quartet, with guitar legend Sonny Greenwich, Doug Willson on bass, Bob Angus on piano, and Jerry Fuller on drums. The other Canadian show presented the Tony Collacott Trio, with Collacott playing piano, Bob Puce on bass, and Ricky Manus on drums, and the Rob McConnell Quartet, in which trombonist McConnell was supported by Ed Bickert on guitar, Bill Butto on bass, and Bruck Farquhar on drums.
