RIP Kenny Ball

Just heard that Kenny Ball has died. I'm sorry; I loved trad jazz when I was young. Amazingly, he was eighty two and according to his website, was booked to play Grantham tomorrow. What a trouper.

I was sorry to hear it as well. I remember him so well from my youth in particular. Trad Jazz was big in the 1960s. I loved his Midnight in Moscow. Thanks for posting the vid, B. x
Trad was really big then, wasn't it? I picked black and white!
Black and white is perfect for the correct atmosphere :)

Goodbye Kenny

Loved Trad, loved Kenny's Midnight in Moscow which I had on a single and played over and over again.

Re: Goodbye Kenny

Midnight in Moscow has been in my head a lot. Yesterday morning, in the 'what was #1 the day you were born?' slot, the record turned out to be March of the Siamese Children. 1962.
