Song: The General [excerpt]
Recorded at The Tranzac's Main Hall (Tribute to the Life of Ken Aldcroft), October 7, 2016.Heather Saumer/Emily Denison/Karen Ng - The General [excerpt]
Taken shockingly suddenly and entirely too soon, Ken Aldcroft's passing left a heavy mark on many groups: family, friends, neighbours, students as well as musical collaborators and appreciators. All of these were gathered together to share their sorrow and find some joy through fellowship and music in an evening of remembrances and sounds at The Tranzac, where Aldcroft had played so often. Creating scores for Buster Keaton films was one of Aldcroft's many musical sidelines, and his pieces had been explored by a range of ensembles for quite a few years now. This night saw a wind trio give accompaniment to a few scenes from The General — and you can hear the crowd reacting to a couple of the pratfalls in the background here.
