The Golden Age Of Trad - Barber, Ball, Bilk ... And The Boys
In the late 1950s, if you weren’t a ‘hep cat’ and didn’t ‘dig’ rock ‘n’ roll, then you still had a choice. Like rock ‘n’ roll, it was music for dancing but its roots went back much further. It was very much a British phenomenon and we called it ‘Trad Jazz’. Its title was shorthand for ‘traditional’ jazz but, for some four glorious years, a definable sound was created and it very much became a part of the popular music fabric. It was happy and carefree and many bands were formed ... but at the vanguard were the three B’s: Ball, Barber and Bilk.
