Members of the 'braintrust' improvisation collective

An improvisation called 'contempt for swing'. Actually, we love swing, but also love the title. This was recorded at the Kathedral in Toronto in 2002.

Members of the group include Gord Allen, trumpet, Adam Hutchison, guitar, Glen Halls, piano, Joe Sorbara, drums, Paco Luviano, bass, Evan Shaw, saxophone, Johnny Bakan, saxophone, .. informally called the 'braintrust ensemble'.
