Pacific Salt

Apparently Pacific Salt has released a recording from the 70's.

Virgin and HighLife doesn't have it. Has anybody seen it?

For those who haven't heard of Pacific Salt they were kind of a Vancouver superband (jazz-rock) of Donny Clark, Jack Stafford, Ian McDougall, Ron Johnson, Torbon Oxbol and George Ursan.

Ian just retired from UVic (Hugh took his place)

The CD is great! Having grown up hearing people like Jack Stafford, Donnie Clark and Ron Johnson play straight ahead it's wild to hear them get down! I picked mine up for $15 at Magic Flute. Ian isn't on the disc but Ollie burns. Apperantly there is enough material for another disc and it would be nice to hear some stuff with Ian on it.

I don't know him personally - but I do know he spells (and presumably pronounces) his name correctly:

Ron Johnston - with a "T".

George Ursan is in California correct? I remember seeing him with George Robert, Tom Harrell, Dado Maroni and Reggie Workman. Man, can George swing.......
Donny Clark is truly one of the world's jazz trumpet giants and Pacific Salt is a strong presentation of the art of "small group" jazz. I will call Ron or Donny and see if I can find out anything from the source.......I would love to get a copy.

.....after speaking with Ron, he stated that it was in fact, PJ. Maybe Ron was thinking a little further back, as I know that PJ was one of the original members, according to Ron.

*This thread* is about a CD called "Better Late Than Never" released last year.

PJ might have been an original member - but the saxophone player on THIS CD is Jack Stafford.

Could be a mistake. They're roughly the same height.

John-
Just going on what Ron told me. I gave Ron all of the info and he told me that it was PJ. PJ was the original member of the group. Maybe Ron was thinkin' about earlier stuff that they did. This could have been the time when Jack joined the band. Ron told me a ton of great "Salt" stories. The greatest one that he told me was in the earliest years of Pac.Salt, they were performing a ballad. Ron looked up from the piano, only to see Donny crying as he was playing. Quote, " At that moment, I knew that Donny was the real deal...."

I dunno man. Sounds like that might be a variation of the old joke about the trumpet player. The one that goes:

A trumpet player is playing a version of "Do You Know What It Means To Miss New Orleans." As he starts the tune, a customer sitting right in front of him suddenly gets a very sad expression on his face. The guy thinks "I'm really getting to this cat. It looks like he's really moved by my interpretation of this tune" and resolves to really make this an expressive version, using his entire repertoire of scoops, shakes, and other emotive devices.

Sure enough, by the end of the tune, the customer is openly weeping.

"Are you from New Orleans?" asks the musician.

"No," sobs the customer," I'm a trumpet player."

I thought the punchline was going to be something like...
"My wife was runner-up to Miss New Orleans" or whatever.

BTW, trumpet jokes are rarely funny. On the other hand, trombone or saxophone jokes, for some reason, are hilarious.

such as...
How many sax players does it take to screw in a lightbulb?
Only one, but they have to go thru 3 or 4 boxes before they find one they like.

The new gig calender for trombonists?
-The year at a glance

See? Funny.

How 'bout this one?

Conti Candoli apparently punched out a high note with such vigour that the pinky hook on his trumpet came loose and his hand flew back, causing him to bloody his own nose.

He turned to the guy next to him in the sction and said, "No pressure system."







Gee, you're right. That's not funny at all.:-)

Or....
Saxes are like opinions.....
Everyone's got one.
Not too funny.
BTW- Most trumpet players do cry when they hear Donny Clark play any ballad.....
