• Short Summary

    Xylophonist Jack Simpson plays a fast tune called 'On the Track' in the studio.

  • Description

    Titles read: "NOW Pathe Pictorial presents - JACK SIMPSON - The famous Drummer & Xylophonist of JACK PAYNE'S BAND IN 'On the Track' - Accompanied by Billy Thorburn at the piano. (By courtesy of JACK PAYNE)".

    Pathe Studio, London.

    Various shots of Jack Simpson playing the vibes / xylophone in a fast number - great! Intercut are shots of a steam train speeding along a track. At the end of the tune Jack smiles and takes a bow.

    (We hear Billy Thorburn but don't see him!)
