Cocktail Hour/ jazzmansjazz

It has come to Jazzmans Jazz attention that Acker Bilk passed away on November 2th 2014, aged 85. Acker was born on January 28, 1929, in Pensford, Somerset, United Kingdom.

I will be playing some of his music in both of my programmes Cocktail Hour and Jazzman's Jazz. Some of his best tunes are as follows: Stranger on the shore, Aria, Arthur's Theme, La Paloma & Ships. He also headed a Jazz band called 'The Paramount Jazz Band'.
