Kenny Ball and his Jazzmen

Probably the greatest test of an artist's success is his durability and Kenny Ball is now a genuine institution and the most successful jazz trumpet player this side of the Atlantic. His landmark recordings of the 1960's such as 'Samantha' and his biggest hit 'Midnight in Moscow' catapulted him to worldwide fame and since then he has become a living legend. 2008 is the 50th Anniversary year for Kenny Ball & His Jazzmen and they continue to be the most popular and successful band in the history of jazz in Britain.
