Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 6, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Wednesday, February 6, 1974 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD -7 Painstaking specialty Book restoration tough job EDMONTON (CP) Dated 1677, the book sat forlornly in a corner of the DIETRICH DENTURE CLINIC MOSS HOSACK Cwttnad Dantal Machante SuHa S-304 5th St. S. Ph. 327-7244 spine bent, outer spine partly missing, pages torn and falling out, and corners worn away. The huge volume, about five inches thick and more than 16 inches tall, had definitely seen better days. But by the tune David Hal- mosi gets through with it, the book will have a new lease on life and should have no trouble WEST COAST SEAFOODS TRUCKLOAD SALE OF Fresh Fish and Seafoods Will held Green Acres Drive-In On Mayor Magrath Dr., Herring Oysters Halibut Shrimp Salmon Smoked fish Thurs. and_Fri., Feb. 7th, 8th From 11 a.m. and p.m. Ask For Prlcolot and Schedule THE 'Jazz Scene' OPENS TONIGHT AT THE NEW GARDEN HOTEL p.m. to 12 midnight HERB HICKS (piano vibaa) VERN and DALE KETCHESON (guitar) flutl) BILL McCAHHOL (ban) KEN ROMAN making it to its 300th year. Mr. Halmosi is owner-man- ager of the High Level Book Bindery and, in addition to the standard rebinding done in such a shop, finds time for a complicated and painstaking restoration of old books. Restoration involves returning the book as much as possible to its original state, a process which he said does not lessen the value of the book. Depending on its condition and what the customer wants done in the way of restoration, Mr. Halmosi may mend breaking pages, repair or make a copy of parts of an old cover or outer spine, sew pages by hand back together into the book, or restore cover comers. Often the work involves matching paper to torn page corners, matching and dyeing leather to the original, or matching type on the new outer spine to the original type on the book cover. The oldest book Mr. Halmosi has restored dated from the 15th century and was brought in by a city lawyer. Many of the restoration jobs come from private individuals, although some is done for museums, libraries and universities. One former Edmonton resident has sent books from England for Mr. Halmosi to restore. Mr. Halmosi began learning the book-binding trade in'his native Hungary when he was 15. It was a type of apprentice system that has no parallel in Canada, he said. He came to Canada in 1966, but had to take construction jobs before he found work in his own field in 1959, at the University of Alberta printing department. He spent about 10 years there. Mr. Halmosi said he would like to get his business to the stage where he can spend all his own time on restoration. Meanwhile, it remains a side- like a labor of love than a commercial proposition. One restoration sometimes takes him three or four days.

HOTEL Red Coach Lounge IN THE TAVERN "Mojo pianists today who was in- fluenced by the early roots of the blues of Sonny Boy Williamson, Tampa Red and Big Bill Broonzy The feeling and phrasing he beard on jukeboxes in rural Mississippi as a boy under- lines his compositions yet. His roots are deep in southern soil, the culture he knew as a boy was black The first tunes he started picking out on his own were boogie, copying Pete Johnson 78s The music was the cat's meow of the 1930s. Basie was doing it, Marylou Williams, Earl Hines, Ray McKinley's band The Andrews Sisters had a hit record with Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy of Com- pany B. That's how basic it was. Mose first went to New York in the summer of 1951 with the idea of finishing his bachelor of arts was one of those people who took about seven years to get a BA because I went to the he couldn't adapt to the big city university scene. He headed back to Mis- sissippi, to play blues, jazz and what was then called jump music. "We were playin' jazz mostly. Even when we played for we tried to swing Mose came back to Manhat- tan in 1956, and stayed. He had his BA in English and philosophy from Louisiana State and enough of the south- ern roadhouses. That was about the time jazz was ac- cepted by the tastemakers. He worked on the road with Stan Getz and played clubs like BiroUand and the Five Spot off and on with Al Cohn and Zoot Sims for more than three years. "I figured if I could get to New York and make a record or somelhin', and get some publicity, it would be a lot easier to work. It only took about 15 years, about 10 years really, I guess." Today, the jazz scene in New York is much like it was back in the early 1950s. A new, younger audience is opening up for Mose Alison, though, in intimate little cabarets that offer easy cover charges, no shnt-and-tie dis- crimination and a healthy mix of jazz, folk and rock that's something less than a sonic massage "I think that's a healthy thing The pure jazz dabs don't exist any more, which is just as well because there really wasn't that much inter- est in jazz to support them The market's gone a different way. "It's a media thing, which is tied to the money thing They posh what's sdhrf "Just like the country 'n' western thing.
