Kenny Ball Dies Aged 82

BrassWindFix were sad to hear the news today that the great jazz trumpeter Kenny Ball has passed away.  He had great success with his band Kenny Ball and his Jazzmen including the hit (I Love You) Samantha in 1961, and the ever popular Midnight In Moscow.  He performed with many artists including Acker Bilk and Chris barber, supported Louis Armstrong and also appeared with Morecambe  and Wise on several occasions.

He bought jazz to the masses during the 1960’s and is regarded as spearheading the Trad Jazz Boom.  He will be greatly missed, but leaves a huge musical legacy.
