  • Description

    Titles read: "Now Pathetone has pleasure in presenting - Jack Simpson (late of Jack Payne's Band) - in one of his famous solos".

    London (probably Pathe Studio).

    Various shots of xylophonist Jack Simpson playing the vibes. About halfway through he moves to a different xylophone and plays on that set, using a kind of foot pedal to create a sort of shimmering sound. He goes back to his original xylophone to finish off the tune.

    Note: there are no details of what the tune is - does anyone know?
