An interview with Mr. lfluckwooii, the Si-hoo!
What do you think of the "artistic atmosphere"
at Trinity College School?
It is difficult to describe any atmosphere as ideal,
only in relation to how it contributes or distracts
from a very necessary state of mind. This is
part of the problem at T.C.S. -the atmosphere
is definitely not conducive to the creative state of
There are natural barriers in any educational
institution, barriers that stifle creativity and pre-
vent the development of individual character,
individualism, there must be some kind of restric-
tions. This is changing, of course, and a few of
the very modern schools are based on the idea
of the vital necessity for complete individual free
dom in educational development.
How does free time or the lack of it influence the
art at this school?
Many of the ideas concerning free time in the
private schools are based on the Victorian con-
cept of boys - that 'idlesness breeds mischief."
It might be an idea for T.C.S. to have perhaps
a free day or completely free afternoon, which
would give ample time for relaxation and crea-
As a private school, how does T.C.S. fare in
the role of a school of artistic talent and develop-
T.C.S. as a whole is with Upper Canada of the
progressive schools of the country. But there is
an incredible lack of growthinall of the Canadian
private schools and T.C.S. is apparently just
getting out of this state.
The private schools are in the position to
contribute immensely to the development of the
arts in this country, but during Canada's first
and most crucial century, their contribution has
been almost negligible.
PAINTINGS, DRAWINGS, PRINTS
What is the mood of Canada's students on the
It is apparent that boys have changed in the past
ten years. They are obviously not as docile as
they were earlier and surely not as secure emo-
tionally. The private school students are more
restless, more insecure and more intelligent. They
are more intolerant of establishment ideas. This
kind of mood could quite conceivably be the
impetus for a great and vital creative era.
VVhat are your recommendations for a more
productive student body, artistically?
The establishment of the Sixth Form Art Course
was quite encouraging but it is unfortunate that
nothing came of the music idea.
This is presently one of the most urgent needs
at the school - the establishment of a frame of
reference, very broad, which would accomodate
the development and support of multi-music
forms, an appreciation ol' traditional and modern
forms of music.

Shocli Treatment - Don Ellis
Don Ellis, as most ofyou probably won'tknow,
is a jazz trumpeter. Ellis leads his own big band,
whose bag it is to play in weird time signatures
such as 1914, 714, 39514, and so on. Thisis
Ellis' titth album. In this album, Ellis has used
a chorus and a sitar to make his selections a
little stranger and somewhat better.
The album opens with a hard hitting 'A New
Kind of Country". The song is very reminiscent
of some early big band sounds in the 40's, except
for the movement of the rhythm section in 714
time. There is agood tenor sax soloby Ron Starr.
The next song, Mercy, Maybe Mercy is almost a
rock and roll number in its rhythm set-up - not
a very exciting piece. Opus 5 is the first strong
number on the album. The band plays tightly
and has excellent solos by Mike Lang and Don
Ellis. Incidentally, this song was taken in one
take, quite extraordinary in a studio produced
album. 'Beat Me Daddy, Seven to the Bar' is a
very poor piece. It's solos seem very dispirited,
and don't add much. 'The Tihai' is the most
experimental song on the album. It has been
inspired by Don Ellis' association with Indian
music. The solos are fair, though not very ima-
ginative. The rhythms inthis selection are excellent
the time but the accents

selection Its a good composi-
tion with good band work and a very haunting
melody. 'Zim' is one of the better cuts of the
album, with solos by Ellis and John Magruder,
the composer, on baritone sax.
Don Ellis' band is an innovation in modern
jazz. The band has played to all kinds of audiences
from hippies to the great jazz lover and after
all these performances, has been applauded hear-
tily. 'Shock Treatment' is, at best, a three star
album, but it is a good album to start a Don Ellis
