Jim Galloway: A Journey In Jazz
Scots Canadian Jim Galloway (1936-2014) from Dalry, outside Glasgow, became Canada's ambassador of jazz. Galloway's saga is about the global transmission of African American music, America's greatest gift to the world. Galloway studied at the world famous Glasgow College of Art. He emigrated to Toronto in 1964. He was recognized internationally as a wondrous saxophonist collaborating with stalwarts like Buddy Tate and Jay McShann. Co-founder of the Toronto Jazz Festival, Galloway also made his mark as an impresario and music journalist.
Jim Galloway - A Journey in Jazz was filmed in Dalry, Glasgow, Kansas City, New York, Toronto and Vienna following the path of Galloway's extraordinary career.
