It isn’t for me to pay tribute to Acker Bilk. That is best left to his surviving fellow giants of jazz. But as he was one of my earliest jazz heroes, perhaps the very first, I do want to honour him by linking back to two earlier Jazz&Jazz posts.

  1. David A Ellis says:

    Acker appeared in Chester at the Gateway theatre, now gone. I interviewed him and found him to be great character. I recorded the interview and he told me how much he liked playing in Chester.
