Klook with Rene Thomas

Still in summer mode over here at Four on the Floor, but in the meantime here's some rare footage of the great Kenny Clarke with guitarist Rene Thomas to check out (in colour too!):

I don't know much about Rene Thomas except that a few years ago Montreal drummer/pianist/recording engineer Andre White played me some unreleased recordings of Thomas with Kenny Clarke that were absolutely burning (a version of "A Night in Tunisia" that featured Klook stands out in particular...) Does anybody out there have any more info about Rene Thomas and, in particular, his association with Kenny Clarke?

It's also nice to hear/see Klook playing in an organ/guitar trio format. These configurations always seem to bring out a different side of a drummer's playing, in my opinion...
