Sackville

Sackville Recordings was founded in 1968 with the express purpose of recording an all star band know as The Jazz Giants. This band was assembled for a two week job at Toronto’s Colonial Tavern. From the first set the music clicked and it was soon apparent that this was going to be something special.

The musicians were Wild Bill Davison (cornet), Herb Hall (clarinet), Benny Morton (trombone), Claude Hopkins (piano), Arvell Shaw (bass) and Buzzy Drootin (drums). Bill was the front man at the microphone and Claude Hopkins was the musical director.

Before the first week was out, a consortium of jazz fans had pooled their money for this initial recording. In those days $5000.00 was enough to get the project off the ground.
