Album notes read: "Tom Mason as a young boy studied piano under Professor Wheatley who thought he should become a concert pianis but Tom wanted to play jazz. 'While not sure I could handle it, Professor Wheatley arranged for me to play at the silent movie theatre in Belleville called the REGENT. I was 19 at the time and played six nights and six matinees a week and acquired skill at improvisation by setting musical moods for the various scenes throughout the film.' This was in the year 1922. Some time later he went to Montreal, then Chicago, as a night club entertainer. Upon returning to his home town Belleville, he formed a nine piece orchestra calling it the 'COMMODORES'. 'It was a very popular orchestra and we played the Quinte Circuit, Belleville, Kingston, Collin's Bay, Cobourg and outlying communities. I also did my own arrangements for the band as they were unobtainable at this time. Travelling was primitive in those days in comparison with today's standards. This was before the era of paved roads, snow-plows, wind-shield wipers, anti freeze and heaters. Before starting out in winter they contacted various farmers en route to make sure roads were open. If they got stuck, the same farmers brought teams of horses to get them going again during those pre radio/TV days.
"When the Second World War started he joined the Army and went through the usual rigorous physical training. However his musical training soon became known and Captain Tom Mason found himself directing large army shows to entertain the troops in Canada and Overseas being honourably discharged about 1946. One of Tom's goals in life is to bring happiness to others. He is still attempting to attain that goal with this album of some of the hit tunes of the twenties and early thirties that the 'COMMODORES' played."
