• Short Summary

    The Ivor and Basil Kirchin Band rehearse a jazz number in the big band style.

  • Description

    Wardour Street, London.

    M/S of musicians from the Ivor and Basil Kirchin Band being given instructions by Ivor Kirchin. Various shots of the band as they rehearse an arrangement of 'Jungle Fire Dance' - quite good big band jazz. Basil Kirchin on drums really goes for it, surrounded by flames - he must be pretty hot in that woolly jumper (you would not catch Gene Krupa in such an article). Ivor conducts with gusto.

    Good shots of a big band at rehearsal.

    Note: official title of the number being played may be 'Jungle Jive Dance'.
