At least 4 cameras, by my count. Really nice footage, as great to see as hear!

Looking at the date of recording, presumably the Jazz Messengers were in town to do a show at the CNE?

Very nice, thanks for posting.  Is that a cornet Lee's playing?

Thanks. Very cool.  One of my favorite pieces. I think it's a Coronet.

Not during the CNE -- it's always in the last couple of weeks of August, ending on Labour Day.  And it does look like a cornet rather than a trumpet.  (PS:  you play a cornet, you wear a coronet.)

Indeed, thanks for clarifying.
