Couldn’t resist posting a video of Kenny Ball and his Jazzmen
Fifty years ago – I know, I know – it was the done thing to go to a trad dance at the local football stadium halls. We thought ourselves so smart because we liked jazz as well as rock and roll, though we still did the odd quickstep and slow shuffle to some numbers. Then I hooked up with HBTW (It probably means something different now…..) anyway, we were dating, so the dances tended to be at the local uni halls. Fast, furious, familiar and oh so poignant. how wonderful that we still dance even today.
Cannot believe Kenny is dead and gone, and suddenly 82 doesn’t seem to be so old.
May he rest in peace with grateful thanks for all the pleasure and fun he brought to life.
