Kenny Ball is a legend. Probably the greatest test of an artists success is his durability. For more than forty years Kenny Ball has flown the flag for his particular brand of traditional jazz all over the world. It is a tribute to his stamina and musical integrity that Kenny Ball and His Jazzman are so popular today as they were back in 1960 when they had their first chart hit with Samantha. From that time on his after hit came pouring out until the final tally was fourteen top thirty records eclipsing even Kenny's idol the great Louis Armstrong's total and which included Midnight In Moscow, a chart-topper in both the UK and USA.
