  • George chisholm

    For reasons I know not I was wondering whatever became of trombone meister George.

    Did he ever record anything other than easy listening musical pillows?

    What kids TV programme was he always on ? (been annoying me for ages trying to remember)

    Has he traded his slide for a harp?

    I feel there is someone out there who knows the answer to these and no doubt many other wonderful things

    George Chsihom passed away in his seventies in 1987. Most people know him for producing music at the jazzier/easier/cheesier end of the musical spectrum, but he did record a brilliantly funky piece of jazz-rock for the 1976 BTW 'Impact' library album called 'Into the Light'.

    He was also in the trombone section for arranger Dick Doerschuk's excellent and very obscure 1976 UK album on Regis, which features some lovely funky style library tunes.
    A leaping rocker with a strong mood, a moderate beat and a safari feel.

      George Chisholm recorded funky music!?

      Now you're gonna tell me Victor Borge hung out with Fela Kuti and Dickie Henderson worked with James Brown.

        I think the Chizzmeister was a luminary of PlayAway wasn't he? I'm sure I remember him parping away (Rich?) beside Jonathan Cohen on many occasions. Maybe Derek Guyler came along for a washboard jam too?

        Chisholm though? Rich, surely Chisholm sounds enough like something else for you to assume your mantle of Smut Peddler extraordinaire?!!!

        Actually, when I was browsing play.com for World Cinema, I happened upon a Bollywood film called 'Jism' - how I chortled.

          Dead you say? I feel a part of me haas died too.
          Though he could have graced Playaway I've a feeling I'm remembering a Crackerjack style show where he took on a stright man role (maybe?).

          Thnks for the info on his more dynamic moments I have a feeling I have the 'Into the Light' LP so I shall dig it out and play it in some kind o obscure tribute.

          Now abou this Derek Guyler Jam , did he ever record anything? I have a feeling wahboards are due a revival and want to get in early

            It gets a bit confusing as there was also a session trumpeter in the 70s called George Chisholm - I wonder whether he might be the man behind the BTW track?

            George Chisholm the trombonist was indeed in the house band for Play School/Play Away, and he appears on a couple of the LPs too. Aside from his musical endeavours he also got something of a reputation as a TV comedian, so Play Away would have suited him down to the ground! He also played the marvellously wobbly solo on the theme tune for The Flumps.

            He suffered from Alzheimers in the last few years of his life - I think he died a bit more recently than 1987, though.

              I always used to feel sorry for Mel C for her 'unfortunate' surname. But I can't twist 'Chisholm' into a sniggerfest with the lines I've been fed so far (keep trying&#33.
