The Lost 1974 Sessions is an album inspired by the extraordinary group of jazz musicians that created it and born from the serendipitous circumstances that brought them together. Complete with session outtakes, the album takes the listener into the studio, almost experiencing the recording as it happens. Each musician's brilliance is showcased on specific tracks chosen to highlight their individual talents. The Lost 1974 Sessions achieves what it set out to do; exquisitely capture a moment in time realized by Canada's greatest jazz percussionist, Peter Appleyard. As a member of Benny Goodman's jazz sextet, Peter Appleyard had the opportunity to play with members of Goodman's band at Ontario Place Forum in 1974. Assembling Slam Stewart on bass, Hank Jones on Piano, Zoot Sims on Tenor, Urbie Green on trombone, Bobby Hackett on cornet and Mel Lewis on drums, under the name "The Jazz Giants, " Appleyard had the foresight to record this group of incredible jazz musicians after that night's show. The result is the phenomenal The Lost 1974 Sessions.
