      Sorry for delay in replying to request from "Dan Van Landingham" for
      Information regarding British trombone player George Chisholm. Dan, there is not a
      great deal I can tell you that you wont find on various web sites . The best of
      the sites dealing with George is probably his life story "Gentleman Of Jazz"
      that you will find on
      georgechisholm.tripod.com/ I quote from it's headline ,

      > GENTLEMAN OF JAZZ tells the fascinating story of George Chisholm, from his
      > boyhood in a part of Glasgow that made the Gorbals seem upmarket to a 50-year
      > career in jazz that earned him the OBE. In his own words - and in a few
      > borrowed from co-author Bob Sinfield - George describes his eventful and often
      > hilarious double life as trombonist and comedian, a combination that led him to
      > work with everyone from Ambrose to Armstrong, from Goodman to the Goons,
      > from Sinatra to Superman.
      >
      Additional to the information on that site It is interesting to note that
      Victor Sylvester besides his famous strict tempo "Ballroom Orchestra" also
      introduced at the end of WW2 , what was known as "The Victor Sylvester Jive Band" .
      This group consisted of some of Britain's top jazz musicians and was led by
      George Chisholm. The other members were Aubrey Franks - tenor sax. 'Poggy'
      Pogson - clarinet. Tommy McQuater - trumpet. Billy Munn -piano. George Elliot -
      guitar. Tommy Bromley - bass. Jock Cummings -drums.
      Hope this helps your search for information

        Thanks for the information.I'll check it out.There was another bandleader from Britain I had
        a 78(on British Decca)was by bandleader Harry Roy.I found this recording in a Salvation
        Army thrift store in the late '60s.This record had a bit of a chunk out of the center and I
        think the title was "Stepping Out at Midnight".The obverse was "Barrel House Boogie".It
        was a great band.I also had an American Decca of "Canadian Capers" by Lew Stone's b-
        and.I bought that one back in late 1978 and was in mint condition when I had it.I left some
        78s back in Texas and it may be in that box.The only other George Chisolm is on a comp-
        act disc I bought several years ago.
