Hi Katie!
Great! When I was something like 17 years of age I sometimes helped out, mostly during summer holidays, with the La Vida Jazzband and Silver Leaf Brassband.Jim was a regular member of that band then, so I must have done something like 30 - 40 gigs with him during those years, on clarinet and alto sax.I think I played together with Jim Leigh and Elyna Tatum at the Rotterdam Jazz festival then.
The funny thing is that a few weeks ago I was wondering what happened to him. So a pleasant surprise to read his name!     
Kind regards,     
Bert Brandsma

Hi Bert - Yes, that's our Jim Leigh!  Do you know him from when he lived on that side of the world?  I play with him every Sunday at a farmer's market in Montrose, California.  Here's a little video I made showing our Sunday gig:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgfX4TkG-gACheers,Katie Los Angeles, CA

Hello Katie,
Is that the same trombone playing Jim Leigh who lived for many years in the Netherlands? (and played with : High Moor City Seven and La Vida Jazzband here?)
Kind regards,
Bert Brandsma
