Sylvia Mary KISSOCK
By Conrad ALEXANDROWICZ Thursday, April 17, 2003 - Page A22
Mother, friend, meteorologist. Born January 9, 1919, in London, England. Died July 13, 2002, in Victoria, British Columbia, of heart failure, aged 83.
My mother was the first child born to William Henry KISSOCK and Catherine IRENE, née SHARPE. Her father was a wacky Scot, originally named MacKISSOCK, who worked as a marine engineer. Her mother came from a large family whose parents were wealthy brewers. When my mother was 5, the family moved to Australia, near Adelaide. Here she spent some of the happiest years of her life, excelling at dancing and acrobatics, and spending much time on the beach with many Friends.
Then the Depression hit and my grandfather lost his job. They returned to cold, grey, out-of-work England, and the family, like many others, had a very hard go of things. (By this time sister Marian, nine years Sylvia's junior, had joined the family.)
My mother took after her father: she seems to have inherited his irreverent sense of humour, native optimism, great generosity, love of adventure, and talent for dancing. She had always wanted to be a performer, but her mother vetoed that idea, and insisted that Sylvia take secretarial courses at Pitman's College; my mother became a first-rate secretary and administrator.
During the Second World War, Sylvia joined the Women's Auxiliary Air Force and worked as a meteorologist. She met my Polish father, Adam ALEXANDROWICZ, in London after the war. He swept her off her feet with his dashing good looks and continental manners. The couple emigrated to Canada, eventually settling in Ottawa, where he worked for the federal government. Because of her asthma, Ottawa winters were a great trial for her. They had three sons: older brother Stefan, myself, and Adam junior.
Life with my father was mostly very hard; he suffered from bipolar disorder, and he never really recovered from the Second World War. In 1975, she left him, taking most of the furniture with her: she had paid for it out of her meagre salary.
When she retired in 1984, she moved to Victoria, a city where she had only one old friend. But moving there was an adventure that she undertook with anticipation and pleasure.
She enjoyed keenly her retirement there. She loved the swarms of robins in February, the stunning rhododendrons, the cherry blossoms, and the daffodils. But heart disease (she'd had a heart attack back in Ottawa in 1975) was stalking her relentlessly. Despite her devotion to health food, the right fats, a positive attitude, and lots of exercise, the effects of arteriosclerosis continued to accumulate.
My mother suffered much from various ailments of the physical body, but she never let them get her down. She had very few material or financial resources and never met another man after leaving my father, but she never lapsed into bitterness or self-pity. She made the most of life with her energy, enthusiasm, a great sense of humour, and passion for the causes of feminism and environmental activism.
Mum must have had an extra portion of luck from somewhere, since she survived so many health crises. But in the last few months she took what she herself recognized as the last turn with the onset of congestive heart failure. Always independent, she had no wish to languish at home or to be parked in a long-term care facility. So, sometime during her afternoon nap, she just left. She used to say to me, "You know, I always wanted to go out with a massive heart attack, not slowly fall apart." It seems she got what she wanted.
If anything can be said to exemplify my mother's life, it's the concept of triumph over adversity. She had a hard life, but she lived well. Sylvia was a woman of great integrity and principle a dedicated mother and a loyal friend.
Conrad ALEXANDROWICZ is Sylvia's son.

The day the music didn't die
Beloved Toronto trumpeter credited with helping preserve a unique form of New Orleans jazz
By Sarah LAMBERT Thursday, March 6, 2003 - Page R9
Toronto -- The tightly knit world of New Orleans traditional jazz has lost one of its greats with the death, last month, of Cliff (Kid) BASTIEN, leader of Toronto's treasured Happy Pals.
The trumpeter is credited as having nothing less than single-handedly kept alive the unique, raw, New Orleans style of jazz, through his leadership and mentorship of hundreds of musicians.
Saddened fans and musicians filed into the city's Grossman's Tavern all week last month to pay tribute to Mr. BASTIEN at the long-time home of the Happy Pals, where the walls are lined with photos of his fans and musicians. It was a send-off worthy of New Orleans, birthplace of the kind of jazz Mr. BASTIEN played with his seven-piece bands, the Camelia Jazz Band and later the Happy Pals, during the 30 or so years he played at the Toronto landmark.
"He was never late. Never, never ever, said Christine LOUIE, whose family inherited Mr. BASTIEN's Saturday-afternoon gig when Al GROSSMAN sold the bar in 1975.
So it was with sinking hearts on February 8 that his loyal audience and band members watched the minute hand tick past 4 o'clock, waiting for him to arrive, brass trumpet in hand.
When he was found later that afternoon still sitting in his armchair, apparently looking up a new song in his hymn book, the Happy Pals played on and raised a glass in tribute to their leader who died as he lived, surrounded by music. He was 65 years old.
Noonie SHEARS, a long-time friend and leader of the traditional impromptu parade that would inevitably snake through Grossman's as Saturday afternoon wound down, said she thought Mr. BASTIEN was looking up I'll Fly Away, the old gospel song recently dusted off in the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou?
The band played it for the first time at Mr. BASTIEN's official memorial at Grossman's the Saturday following his death.
Born in 1937 in London's East End, Mr. BASTIEN emigrated to Canada in 1962 after a stint in New Orleans. It was there that he heard trumpeter (Kid) Thomas VALENTINE play and, experiencing a kind of epiphany, Mr. BASTIEN followed him from club to club and studied his style. It ultimately inspired a lifelong ambition to keep alive New Orleans-style traditional jazz.
A purist who drew a distinction between his chosen genre of music and the more popularized Dixieland Jazz, Mr. BASTIEN once said: "Had I never heard that music, I wouldn't have become a musician. I wouldn't play anything else."
I Like Bananas, Caledonia, All of Me and Louisiana Vie en Rose were just a few of his standards. But, as Happy Pals' trombonist Roberta TEVLIN explained, Mr. BASTIEN wasn't content to simply recycle the old chestnuts.
"Cliff kept adding songs. I've probably played 1,000 different tunes with him. He was particularly notorious for finding songs outside the standard jazz list, said Ms. TEVLIN, who joined the band 20 years ago, along with her saxophonist husband, Patrick.
Bob Dylan, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Western Swing numbers, Nigerian folk songs and Dean Martin could all tumble out during a set, said drummer Chuck CLARKE.
Mr. BASTIEN's Friends and peers point out that he was known for three primary qualities: His love of music, his scorn for fame or publicity and his mentoring of local musicians.
During the memorial at Grossman's, Downchild Blues Band headman Donny WALSH arrived from Florida to sit in with his harmonica, as he had done regularly with Mr. BASTIEN in the 1970s. Juno-nominated bluesman Michael PICKETT was there, as well as jazz singer Laura HUBERT, formerly of the Leslie Spit Treeo, pianist Peter HILL, The Nationals and many more.
From the worldwide New Orleans jazz community, among those who came to pay their respects were saxophonist Jean-Pierre ALESSI of France, trumpeter Roger (Kid Dutch) UITHOVEN of Orlando, Florida, clarinetist Kjeld BRANDT from Denmark and Toronto's Brian TOWERS, Jan SHAW and Joe VAN ROSSEM.
"I cannot imagine the Toronto traditional jazz scene without Cliff BASTIEN and his raw, emotional New Orleans-style jazz, Mr. TOWERS wrote in a notice posted on the Internet shortly after he learned of the death of his friend.
"He was probably the most popular and influential figure on the Toronto traditional jazz scene. He taught many others to play their instruments in the style and introduced thousands to the joys of New Orleans traditional jazz.
"We went to Grossman's after our own gig and Jan and I played some hymns with the Happy Pals. A sadder and more emotional scene I have rarely seen."
Toronto musician Joanne MacKELL, leader of the Paradise Rangers, wonders how things might have been if she had not met Mr. BASTIEN when she was just starting out.
"Though I was young and inexperienced, Kid would always invite me up to sing, Ms. MacKELL said, recalling how the band took her under its wing when she discovered them in the early 1970s.
"Kid didn't care about money or popular opinion. He filled Grossman's Tavern every Saturday for some 30 years because he played great music with honesty and integrity and he inspired me to try and do the same."
Until just last year, Mr. BASTIEN, who feared flying, avoided the lure of the road, taking only an annual sojourn to New Orleans for the French Quarter Festival. Finally, in the fall of 2002, he accepted an invitation to tour Scandinavia with the Danish/Swedish band New Orleans Delight, playing with George BERRY on tenor sax. A new Compact Disk is due to be released this spring.
His official recordings are few, numbering about a dozen, as Mr. BASTIEN preferred to play to an audience. Though, as Ms. TEVLIN pointed out: "There are bootleg tapes all over the place."
His legacy, the band says, is keeping the New Orleans style of jazz alive.
"Kid Thomas VALENTINE was one of the greats, and when he was gone, Kid BASTIEN carried on. Kid BASTIEN was one of the greats, and now Kid's gone. So who's going to carry the music on now? We will, said saxophonist Mr. TEVLIN on behalf of the Happy Pals, who intend to continue the Saturday-afternoon tradition at Grossman's.
In another side to his life, Mr. BASTIEN was an accomplished commercial artist whose hand-crafted signs, woodwork and acid-etched glass can be seen in many local pubs, including Toronto's Wheat Sheaf Tavern. His work can be found across Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia and California, as well as in Europe.
Mr. BASTIEN's wish was to be buried in New Orleans.

She soldiered on with the help and support of her many steadfast Friends whose companionship she cherished. In the end her prayers were answered: her darkness was transformed into light, as she was able to see and be with Tom once more. Many thanks to the staff on 4E at Oakville Trafalger Memorial Hospital whose remarkable and uncommon compassion and care made her journey easier. As well to Dr. Frank ROUSE, a dear friend and physician of 42 years, who was there for her until the end. A celebration of her life will be arranged for a later date at Hearthstone By The Lake, Burlington, Ontario.
