I Remember
By Alex GINOU, Thursday, March 10, 2005 - Page S7
Alex GINOU of Toronto writes about Heath LAMBERTS, whose obituary appeared on March 5.
After attending one of his performances at the Shaw Festival in the summer of 1987, we invited him to visit us, at his leisure, at our home in Agincourt for an afternoon with his fans. He came and we had a delightful afternoon around the swimming pool. He swam and had everyone in the palms of his hands. It is a golden memory.

LEVINE, Samuel Robert " Sam"
On Saturday, January 22, 15 days after celebrating his 90th birthday: Sam LEVINE, professional musician, musicians' advocate and raconteur passed away after a long illness.
Sam was a long-time member of the Toronto Symphony's double bass section. He was also a proud President Emeritus and Life Member of the Toronto Musicians' Association, Local 149, American Federation of Musicians.
Sam spent much of his career working to improve the security and quality of life for Canadian professional musicians. He fought hard to keep live music alive when disco threatened to make it disappear.
Born in Toronto in 1915, Sam was the son of Russian- Jewish immigrants Morris and Annie LEVINE. When they were swept away by the Spanish Flu, his aunt, the late Dora Nepom, courageously stepped in and became "Mother" to four- year-old Sam and his younger sister Laura.
Sam graduated from Harbord Collegiate, played guitar, banjo and bass in various bands including the Trump Davidson Orchestra. With partners he opened the Onyx Club on Church Street, Toronto's first jazz club. It survived long enough to host Duke Ellington in an after-hours jam.
With World War 2, Sam enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force, spending the war years in a musical show, "The Blackouts", travelling up the British Columbia coast to Alaska and overseas, entertaining the allied troops.
Initially, Sam was stationed in Ottawa, where he met the magnificent Tula MARLIN, a secretary in the War Department. After a courtship conducted mostly by mail, they married in 1946, set up house in Toronto and started their family.
Sam graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Music and joined the Toronto Symphony's bass section. Through the Fifties and Sixties he continued to play club and studio dates along with weddings and bar mitzvahs.
He became a union activist, serving for years as a vice-president, then president of Local 149 after retiring from the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. To support symphonic musicians, he helped found the Association of Canadian Orchestras.
Among Sam's greatest loves were his family, his music, fellow musicians, a good story, television sports, the City of Toronto, and the Scarborough bungalow that was our family home for 50 years. He hated hypocrisy, injustice, interruptions, unkempt lawns, boiled chicken, deejays and disco.
Beneath Sam's private and dignified persona of strong commitments and high principles was a fun-loving man with a mad sense of humour. At the family dinner table, gems from his fund of jokes, memories and funny stories nearly always followed dessert.
As a father Sam was straightforward, demanding, supportive, adoring and inspiring. He liked to say his children never took any of his advice...but he knew better. He may have been wrong in 1959 (and every year thereafter) when he said that "rock and roll is dead", but he was right about almost everything else.
Happy and proud to have shared Sam's life and sadly mourning his death are Tula, his beloved wife and companion of 59 years, daughter Anita DAHLIN of Brechin, Ontario, son Mike LEVINE and his wife, Rosie, of Toronto. He was the cherished grandpa of Corinna DAHLIN of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and Matt LEVINE of Chicago. He is dearly loved and missed by his only sister, Laura EDELL of Syracuse, New York her sons Mark of Las Vegas, David of New York City and their children, as well as by many cousins, nieces and nephews.
Sam was a treasured member of Tula's family - the Marlins of Hamilton, the Sauve and Barnaby families of Ottawa will all miss him.
He is also remembered by many dear Friends from his musical past, including former Toronto Symphony players Marilyn MEYER, Ruth BUDD and Murray GINSBERG, all of Toronto.
Our family gratefully thanks the staff of Providence Centre for their care over the last six months.
In Sam's memory, please enjoy the live music of your choice.

I Remember -- Robert FARNON
By Murray GINSBERG, Thursday, May 5, 2005, Page S9
Toronto -- Murray GINSBERG of Toronto also writes about Robert FARNON.
I met Bob FARNON in 1943 when we were both members of the Royal Canadian Army Show. He was a captain who arranged all the show's music; I was a private who played the trombone. He had an enormous sense of humour. During the daily inspection of the troops, a kindly officer of the day might stop and ask a private, "Have you heard from your mother, Jones?" or "I hope you're feeling better, Smith."
Not so Capt. FARNON, who had little patience for military manners. When Bob was officer of the day, he would walk along the line of musician-soldiers and ask, "Private Newman, what time did you get out of Celia's bed last night?" or "Private Roderman, this is the second time I've noticed your fly open. What will people think?"
Of course, the officers assembled behind him all seethed with displeasure, but that didn't seem to bother Bob, whom we all loved.

Hart WHEELER
By Murray GINSBERG, Monday, December 5, 2005, Page A24
Musician, friend, photographer, recording technician. Born December 22, 1921, in Toronto. Died June 10 in Guelph, Ontario, of prostate cancer, aged 83.
Hart WHEELER was a dear friend, and one of the most intelligent individuals I ever knew. He also went out of his way so many times to help others.
Hart worked professionally as a jazz saxophonist from the age of 18 and was truly one of a kind: Talent oozed from every pore. Not only was he an accomplished musician, he was also an accomplished photographer as well as an amazing recording technician who carried his equipment wherever he went.
Quite often we would meet at my apartment for lunch or dinner. With Friends, mostly musicians, seated around the table, the stories would fly from everyone's lips while Hart would have his microphone turned on, catching every snippet of conversation "for posterity," he would say.
And each story always drew a chorus of laughs only to be topped by another story and more laughs. Those were wonderful times and I always knew that without Hart present, those parties would not have been quite the same.
He often told a charming story about how he got into music as a youth in Toronto. He said he was 15 years old and his rich aunt recognized some sort of latent talent in him because he was playing bones and harmonica in public school. So she went to Whaley Royce, the music store on Yonge Street, and bought a clarinet. That decision, he said, affected his whole life.
At the same time, he said he discovered Benny Goodman. The first thing he wanted to do was play Benny Goodman solos. The clarinet had come with ten lessons and the teacher showed him where to put his fingers. From then on, he said he got Benny Goodman records and learned Benny Goodman solos by himself. And that was how he got started.
During the Second World War, Hart served in the Royal Canadian Air Force band. After the war, he became a very busy musician. Several times he guested for director Norman JEWISON on his Canadian Broadcasting Corporation television series The Denny Vaughan Show. He also performed with the big bands of Bobby Gimby, Ellis McLintock, Art Hallman and Mart Kenney, as well as Jim Galloway's Wee Big Band and the Canadian Tribute to Glenn Miller.
In the Miller band, Hart played and sang as a featured performer. Whenever he sang songs such as Chattanooga Choo Choo and I've Got a Gal in Kalamazoo, his shining personality lit up the entire ballroom.
One of his greatest moments came on May 15, 1953, when he played alongside jazz giants DIzzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Charles Mingus and Max Roach in the legendary Massey Hall jazz concert when these musicians played together for the only time in their lives.
Hart's high level of intelligence was evident when I once asked him why he loved to play. His answer was direct and to the point: "It's tied up with emotion; it's tied up with ego; it's an artistic endeavour where your output is immediate. A lot of artistic output can take years to realize, or weeks or days, depending on what the finished product is -- a photograph, a painting, a novel or a motion picture. None are as immediate as music.
"When you play an instrument, it's not just your eye and your hand painting a picture. It's the immediate result that pleases the senses. It's a continuing, revolving beautiful experience."
Hart is survived by sons Hartland, Ted and Stacey, their wives and children. And sadly missed by his cherished cousin, Denna BENN.
Murray is Hart's friend.
