    Pinchin, Jim

    Clarinetist and saxophonist who appeared on Tim Feehan’s 1983 album, Carmalita.  He has been a member of several groups, including the Bob Tildesley Quintet, the Edmonton Wind Ensemble, The Gastown Strutters Dixieland Band, the Hard Rubber Orchestra, the Jim Pinchin Quintet (natch), and the Kate Hammett-Vaughan Quintet. 


    In 1987, he reunited with Tim Feehan for his self-titled album.  Other recordings on which he performed in the ‘90s were Brothers Creeggan, Vol. 2, Practically Naked by Steve Vallance, and Snake Fence Country with the Edmonton Wind Ensemble.  In 1999, he multi-tasked on alto and tenor sax on Kate Hammett-Vaughan’s valentine, How My Heart Sings.  He has even performed on video games, such as NBA Live 99, NBA Live 2000, and The Simpsons:  Hit and Run. 


    In 2001, he made the cut on the various-artists compilation, Live at the Cellar.  Then he joined the philanthropic Divas for Life in concert at the Vogue Theatre in Vancouver, British Columbia, in February 2002.  They used his services again on their 2002 album, Divas for Love.  The same year involved a reunion with Kate Hammett-Vaughan on her Devil May Care album, on which again he multi-tasked, this time on soprano and tenor sax.  It was a busy year that also found him working with Bruce McCulloch on his Drunk Baby Project.  He closed out 2002 by celebrating the holidays at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver in a yuletide concert known as “The Magic of Christmas”. 


    In 2004, he played sax on the CDs, Big Miller and the Tommy Banks Big Band and Quartet and the Kate Hammond-Vaughan Quintet’s Eclipse, which won the Canadian Independent Music Award in the category of Favourite Jazz Group.  His most recent recording appears to be The Paperboys’ album, Dilapidated Beauty.
