Often atnight they’d end up one by one in my bed becauseI’d be sorry about any of them feeling left out. Mymother would come in and find me asleep on thefloor. Today maybe I’d tell little me “don’t ever letthe sidemen upstage you!”What is your earliest musical memory?Lying under a grand piano, having all that lovelymusic wash over me. This was at our neighbours’home, Rosemary Hahn and MartaStayner — two elderly German ladies — sisters.Rosemary had studied to become a concertpianist. She was incredibly widely read andphilosophical, and was pretty much my first pianoteacher — she had a major impact on my life.My parents cut a miniature gate in the fence so as afour-year-old I could visit freely.What do you remember about music as a child?I loved lip-syncing and pretending to play along withrecords in front of a big mirror with my friends. We hadthe Supremes and Aretha Franklin ... There was also theJim Kweskin Jug Band — Maria Muldar sang with them.I got the idea of making home made instruments andI’d bring my friends over to play jug band with me.We made one of those things with a wash tub witha string and a broomstick. And I remember that theCanadian Brass come to perform for us at BrownSchool. Right in front of us they cut up a garden hoseinto pieces, stuck some kind of nozzles on the ends, andplayed them like horns. We had band in grade 5 and 6,and I loved it.I saw this NFB film in grade 6 or 7 with people playingmusic on flower pots, so I went out and gatheredterracotta pots and hung them from the pipes in thebasement to play on them. My brother lent me somekind of a tape recorder, and I recorded it.And I had these bongos — I remember playing alongwith Gordon Lightfoot’s The way I feel is like a robin. Itwas kind of bossa nova Lightfoot.I loved going to Sam’s to buy a new record. I’d comehome, turn the lights out and listen in the dark ...A longer version of Jane Bunnett’s interviewcontinues at NAVASCONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNERS!
