Jim Galloway

Jim Galloway (born James Braidie Galloway in Kilwinning, Ayrshire, Scotland) was a jazz clarinet and saxophone player.

He based his career in Canada since emigrating in the mid-1960s. He began an ensemble, the Wee Big Band, in the late 1970s.

One of his albums, Walking On Air, was nominated for Best Jazz Album at the Juno Awards of 1980.

He was the artistic director of the Toronto Jazz Festival from 1987 to 2009. In 2002 he was made a Chevalier of the French Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. His musical performances continue to be listed on the Toronto Jazz Festival website.

I've usually seen him with his little soprano saxophone, which he played with love and coaxed out wonderful lyrical melodies.
