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.

Derry NOVAK
Suddenly and peacefully at home in Burlington early on Saturday, April 26th 2003 in his 84th year. Derry was born on October 20th, 1919 in Olomouc, in what was then Czechoslovakia. He came to Canada, by his own wits and means in 1939 to join his parents who had led the way. He then joined the Czech Army in Canada and served overseas. Following World War 2, Derry pursued undergraduate studies in political theory at the University of Toronto, and later at the London School of Economics. In his actions, in his studies, and finally in his profession as a great teacher of politics and philosophy at McMaster University (Department of Political Science), where he served as Chairman of the Department, and later as Professor Emeritus, Derry was a lover and defender of liberty and democracy, a fierce critic of all institutions and systems of power which exploited and abused those less well equipped to advance their own interests in society. He was a man of learning and of peace, and, by his example - as in his lectures - he showed how the truly good life could be led. Derry will be deeply missed, as he was so dearly loved and cared for by his wife of 29 years, Nancy. Derry is also survived by his daughter Lee (Stan KANAROSKI,) grandchildren Liz and Katie KANAROSKI, son Daryl (Brian HARRISON, step-children Andrea JOHNSTONE (John SHELLEY) and Brad JOHNSTONE, step-grandchildren Elicia JOHNSTONE and Jesse JOHNSTONE. In the strange and unexplained way that life can often unfold, Derry's first wife, Doreen, died on the same morning as he. In lieu of flowers and services of any kind, and in accordance with his often expressed wishes, please remember Derry by sitting in contemplation listening to the music of Beethoven, preferably a symphony. If desired, contributions can be made to McMaster University, c/o The Derry Novak Award, Main Street West, Hamilton, Ontario, L8S 4M4. Obesa Cantavit

SHERIF o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2003-03-06 published
Journalist and musician was at centre of smalltown life
By Randy RAY Special to The Globe and Mail Thursday, March 6, 2003 - Page R9
Ottawa -- It's a wonder Steve FORSTER wasn't late for every appointment he ever made.
Whether he was strolling along the main drag in Perth, Ontario, where he lived and once ran the weekly newspaper, or cruising the corridors at Algonquin College in Ottawa where he taught journalism, Mr. FORSTER often bumped into someone he knew.
Inevitably, he'd crack a joke, tell a story or initiate a conversation about music, politics or work.
"He was probably one of the most well-known citizens in Perth, says Ralph WILLSEY, a Perth resident and Ottawa Citizen copy editor, who was best man at Mr. FORSTER's wedding in 1992. "He couldn't walk down the street without someone yelling 'hello.'"
He was also a popular figure at Algonquin College.
"He was a big guy... you couldn't help but notice him and he certainly knew lots of people both inside and outside the journalism faculty, says Abla SHERIF, dean of the school of media design at the college, where Mr. FORSTER was on staff for 14 years.
Mr. FORSTER, who was diagnosed with cancer in May, 2001, died at his home in Perth last month. He was 53.
For the better part of his life, journalism and music were Mr. FORSTER's passions. These, as well as his gregarious nature, deep voice, love of storytelling and physical stature -- six-foot, three inches and 290 pounds -- gave him a presence wherever he went.
Mr. FORSTER was born in England into an air force family and came to Canada at age six, living for a time on a military base near the southwestern Ontario community of Centralia where his father Alan was a firefighter.
He spent his teen years in Ottawa and studied journalism at Algonquin before landing his first journalism job in 1970 at The Courier, a weekly newspaper in Perth, about an hour west of Ottawa. He left briefly to work at The Windsor Star and The Ottawa Citizen, but returned to Perth to become editor of the Courier. He joined Algonquin College in 1989 and remained there until illness forced him to take leave in 2001. He also served four years on Perth town council.
"Nobody will ever fill Steve's shoes -- they don't make them like that any more, says Mr. WILLSEY, who met Mr. FORSTER in 1979 when both were reporters covering the Perth area.
Mr. WILLSEY feels his friend's greatest achievements may have been as a musician. Mr. FORSTER, who played bass and guitar, was well-known in the Perth area as the lead singer of rhythm-and-blues groups Powersnooze, and later, Big Steve and the Mudcats, both of which helped him win a wide following in Perth and recognition on the streets of the community. He also played in a band with staff at Algonquin.
He loved rhythm and blues and was a great admirer of James Brown and Smokey Robinson. Musically his work resembled Long John Baldry.
"He could really belt out a song... not everybody can make an arena full of people dance. That was quite an achievement, " said Mr. WILLSEY, who for years jammed with Mr. FORSTER and other musicians, often playing R&B standards such as In the Midnight Hour by Wilson Pickett and Sweet Little Angel by B. B. King. The bands he fronted played the bar scene in Ottawa, Kingston, Ontario, and Lanark County and often appeared at the Crown and Thistle and the Red Fox, both popular nightspots in Perth.
"Other than writing, I would have to say music was right up there as one of his favourites, says Mr. FORSTER's wife Rachel, who sang with Big Steve and the Mudcats. "He was involved in music from his days as a young teen until he passed away."
Mr. FORSTER was also a fiercely dedicated journalist and teacher. As editor and columnist with the Perth Courier, he had a nose for news and distaste for politicians who wasted public money, said Mr. WILLSEY.
After being diagnosed with cancer, Mr. FORSTER wrote several columns about his illness and the treatment he was receiving.
"You can't measure success by money, power or prestige, " said one column. "Success is measured in personal fulfillment, in the joy of life and in the goodness found in Friends, neighbours and family."
In May, 2002, he received the Silver Quill Award from the Ontario Community Newspapers Association for 25 years of service in community journalism.
Mr. FORSTER leaves his wife Rachel, daughter Natasha, father Alan, mother Beatrice and sister Susan.

SHEWCHUK o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2003-04-30 published
Doctor gave the 'gift of life'
'Test-tube' baby expert helped introduce In Vitro Fertilization program at the University of Toronto
By Carol COOPER Special to The Globe and Mail Wednesday, April 30, 2003 - Page R9
Nine months ago, a long-time patient of Dr. Alan SHEWCHUK offered the reproductive endocrinologist and infertility specialist a choice of pictures depicting her daughter to add to his collage of kids' photos from grateful parents. Upon choosing one, he flipped it over and read an inscription: "Thank you for the gift of life."
Dr. SHEWCHUK had unknowingly made an apt choice, one that spoke of the joy his work brought to his patients and their families.
"It was wonderful to have the experience [of having a child]. It was truly a great gift of life, "said the woman, who conceived under Dr. SHEWCHUK's care. Her reaction was typical of those he treated and it drove him: "They [his patients] were just so happy and that was the kick that he got out of it, "said Valerie SHEWCHUK, his wife of 42 years.
Dr. SHEWCHUK, who throughout his career directed the Toronto General Hospital's reproductive biology unit, helped start the University of Toronto's In Vitro Fertilization program, ran a private practice, taught medical school and co-founded a private infertility clinic -- with many activities overlapping -- died of cancer on March 29 at the age of 66.
Known as "Big Al" to many colleagues for his tongue-in-cheek persona of the grand old man of infertility treatment, the good-looking doctor worked briefly as a model and worked evenings at a variety store to pay his way through medical school.
After completing his training, Dr. SHEWCHUK practised family medicine in Toronto's Little Italy. There, in order to communicate with his patients, he learned Italian, adding to the French, German and Ukrainian he already knew. Three years later, he left to study obstetrics and gynecology, completing his residency in 1969. That year he became an associate staff member of Toronto General Hospital and a clinical research fellow in what was later named its reproductive biology unit.
Appointed a staff member at the hospital in 1972, Dr. SHEWCHUK attended more than 3,000 births during his career.
"He just loved delivering babies, "said his daughter Melanie, who worked with her father for 25 years. "He said, when you pulled out a baby, the baby was the most perfect thing in the world. And you hand it to the parents and the parents are just elated."
witnessing the joy of birth motivated Dr. SHEWCHUK to help those who suffered the sorrow of infertility.
"As each decade brought new things to the field of infertility, he kept up and tried to enhance people's fertility in the best way he could with the tools he had at the time, "said Nancy BRYCELAND, the nurse manager who worked with Dr. SHEWCHUK in the reproductive biology unit he headed from 1974 to 1988. One of those tools was in vitro fertilization. Dr. SHEWCHUK travelled with colleagues to Melbourne, Australia, late in 1983 to study the technique and in January, 1984, was among those who began the University of Toronto in vitro fertilization program located at Toronto General.
On June 21 of that year, Dr. SHEWCHUK told the Ontario Medical Association that a Toronto woman participating in the in vitro fertilization program was four-months pregnant, The Globe and Mail reported. In November, 1984, the program's first baby was born.
Dr. SHEWCHUK was born in Toronto on October 18, 1936, the middle of three sons of a schoolteacher of Ukrainian descent and a Ukrainian father who immigrated to Canada during the First World War. Interned in northern Ontario for two years because of his Austro-Hungarian citizenship, Dr. SHEWCHUK's father later worked as a house painter and carpenter.
Dr. SHEWCHUK was a gifted athlete who played quarterback in high-school football and turned down the chance to pursue professional baseball. Instead, he attended the University of Toronto medical school.
As an assistant professor with the school from 1976 to 1983, following time as a clinical instructor and lecturer, Dr. SHEWCHUK demanded a lot of his students, including standards of professional dress. The doctor, who himself wore a lab coat, required they wear a shirt and tie in the presence of patients and sent them home to change if they appeared otherwise.
"He was a great motivator, "said Dr. Matt GYSLER, a former student of Dr. SHEWCHUK's and now chief of obstetrics and gynecology at Credit Valley Hospital in Mississauga, Ontario "He made this area [reproductive medicine] sound interesting."
Appreciative patients brought babies and gifts of baking to his office.
"Dr. SHEWCHUK was like a father figure to his patients, "said Dr. Murray KROACH, chief of obstetrics and gynecology at the Toronto East General Hospital. "He had a presence that gave confidence and he was motivated very strongly to expand this area of reproductive biology."
Said one patient: "He was larger than life and had a magical quality." She remembers how Dr. SHEWCHUK told her that he had slept poorly the night before her ultrasound, worrying about the success of her pregnancy. "He balanced hope with reality," another said.
With a heavy workload, Dr. SHEWCHUK reluctantly stopped delivering babies in the late 1980s. In 1992, along with three others, Dr. SHEWCHUK established START, a private infertility clinic.
"Dr. SHEWCHUK was a great idea man, "said Dr. Carl LASKIN, one of the clinic's co-founders. "He was a real character who would never just accept that it was just by the book. The obvious was never the way he liked to think."
During clinical meetings when colleagues presented sound physiological reasons for a patient's problems, Dr. SHEWCHUK would often counter with an "off-the-wall" explanation. "Many times he would be absolutely wrong, "Dr. LASKIN said, "but he pushed everyone to think differently."
Two and a half months before his death, Dr. SHEWCHUK wrote a letter to a married couple who had seen him. In it, he encouraged them not to give up hope and reminded them that they could adopt. They would make wonderful parents. And he said that people like them were the reason he came to work. They had given him joy, said the man who himself brought joy to so many.
Dr. SHEWCHUK leaves his wife Valerie and children Melanie, Leslie and Alan.

Following graduation, he was commissioned in the Royal Canadian Navy where he served during the Second World War. After the war, he departed for Western Canada and became a major figure in the Alberta Oil Patch - first as an executive with Home Oil and then with Commonwealth Petroleums Limited, which at the time was Canada's largest oil well drilling contractor. He expanded this enterprise into a global corporate entity and further diversified into the field of plumbing and electrical supply and distribution, forming Westburne International Industries Limited. As the founding Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Westburne, he built one of the largest drilling, wholesale plumbing and electrical supply and distribution companies in North America with operations spanning the globe. One of John SCRYMGEOUR's crowning business achievements was when, with Texan partners, he formed SEDCO Industries to build offshore drilling rigs and directed that the construction of several floating drill rigs take place in his native province of Nova Scotia. John SCRYMGEOUR was the first Canadian to be named a Governor of the American Stock Exchange; he was granted honorary doctorates from the Technical University of Nova Scotia in 1984, Dalhousie University in 1993 and was elected to the Nova Scotia Business Hall of Fame in 2002. John SCRYMGEOUR served on many corporate boards, including Brascan, Luscar, Encal Energy, and ATCO Industries, was a director, life member and strong supporter of the Fraser Institute, and an Honorary Member of the Canadian Association of Oil Well Drilling Contractors. A lifelong supporter of the arts, he made significant contributions to the Edmonton Art Gallery, the Dalhousie Art Gallery, where the main gallery is known as the Scrymgeour Gallery and to other galleries and museums across Canada. He will be truly missed by his family, many Friends and business associates and by countless others for his quiet and discrete acts of kindness and generosity. Funeral services will be held in Bermuda at Saint John's Anglican Church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or Dalhousie Art Gallery.
