Acker Bilk PJB 1959 Summer set Acker Bilk and His Paramount Jazz Band another fabulous Acker Bilk composition and equally fabulous Acker Bilk clarinet solo with the rhythmn section 1959 issued under "Starportrait (1959-1969)."

The Band featured here: Acker Bilk (cl); Dave Collett (Pn) Roy James (Ba); Ernie Price (bs); Ron Mackay (dr) (Thanks to "pat4170" for reminding me that Ernie Price was the Bass player).

ACKER BILK - La PALOMA A popular song composed and written by Spanish composer Sebastian Iradier in 1863. The motif of 'La Paloma' (the dove) can be traced back to an episode that occurred in 492 BC preliminary to Darius' invasion of Greece, a time when the white dove had not yet seen in Europe. The Persian fleet under Mardonius was caught in a storm off the shore of Mt. Althos and being wrecked when the Greeks observed white doves escaping from the sinking Persian ships. This inspired the notion that such birds bring home a final message of love from a sailor who is lost at sea. This theme that a final link of love overcomes death and separation is reflected in 'La Paloma'. Bernard Stanley "Acker" Bilk (1929 - ) is a well-known English clarinetist. **UMG owned the sound recording of this video. No copyright infringement intended.

STRANGER ON THE SHORE - ACKER BILK Stranger on the shore (Acker Bilk) Here I stand watching the tide go out so alone and blue, dreaming dreams of you I watched your ship as it sailed out to the sea, taking all my dreams, and taking all of me The sighing of the waves, the wailing of the wind, the tears in my eyes burn, pleading my love, return Why oh why, must I go on like this shall I just be a lonely stranger on the shore?

Mr. Acker Bilk - Stranger On The Shore 1988 (Live) "Stranger on the Shore" is a piece for clarinet written by Acker Bilk for his young daughter and originally named "Jenny" after her. It was subsequently used as the theme tune of a BBC TV drama serial for young people entitled Stranger on the Shore. Real Name: Bernard Bilk Birth Date: 28th January 1929 Birth Place:Pensford Somerset Bilk earned the nickname Acker from the Somerset slang for friend or 'mate'. His parents tried to have him learn the piano, but Bilk as a boy found it restricting upon his love of outdoor activities including football (soccer). He also lost two front teeth in a school fight and half a finger in a sledging accident, both of which Bilk has claimed impacted his eventual clarinet style. He eventually learned the clarinet while serving in the British Army, and by the mid-1950s he was playing professionally. Bilk has been described as "Great Master of the Clarinet" Here I stand, watching the tide go out So all alone and blue Just dreaming dreams of you I watched your ship As it sailed out to sea Taking all my dreams And taking all of me The sighing of the waves The wailing of the wind The tears in my eyes burn Pleading, "My love, return" Why, oh, why must I go on like this? Shall I just be a lonely Stranger on the Shore? The sighing of the waves The wailing of the wind The tears in my eyes burn Pleading, "My love, return" Why, oh, why must I go on like this? Shall I just be a lonely Stranger on the shore? Words by Robert Mellin

Autumn Leaves -- Acker Bilk autumn leaves acker bilk
aria -- acker bilk music: aria artist: acker bilk my comments about this video I believe in the creation account in Genesis and although I am sure those who think otherwise could ask me questions to which I could not give adequate answers, this in no way would change my faith that all we see anywhere in the universe - on earth or out in the vastness of space has been created by the God of the bible. I do not know how the universe ends - in a way I am not too bothered - it would be interesting to know but not vital - the important thing for me is having an inner assurance that God created it at a word by his son Jesus Christ and this video actually makes me stand in awe of the majesty of God and more than that I feel not a little tearful that God who created all this beauty sent Jesus Christ to this world to save sinners and that I am not only known personally to him, but for reasons known only to him, he so worked in my heart that with the hymnist I can truly say " you ask me how I know he lives - he lives within my heart". Not having intellectual understanding of many things cannot affect that nor take me away from him.

Mr. Acker Bilk - "Stranger On The Shore" (1961) Bernard Stanley "Acker" Bilk MBE (born 28 January 1929, Pensford, Somerset, England) is an English clarinetist. He is known for his trademark goatee, bowler hat, striped waistcoat and his breathy, vibrato-rich, lower-register clarinet style. Bilk earned the nickname Acker from the Somerset slang for 'friend' or 'mate'. His parents tried to have him learn the piano, but Bilk as a boy found it restricting upon his love of outdoor activities including football. He also lost two front teeth in a school fight and half a finger in a sledging accident, both of which Bilk has claimed to have affected his eventual clarinet style. He learned the clarinet while serving in the Royal Engineers in the Suez C*** Zone, and by the mid-1950s he was playing professionally. Bilk was part of the boom in traditional jazz that swept the United Kingdom in the late 1950s. He first joined Ken Colyer's band in 1954, and then formed his own ensemble, The Paramount Jazz Band, in 1956. Four years later, his single "Summer Set" (a pun on his home county) hit the British charts and it began a run of eleven top 50 hit singles. Bilk has been described as "Great Master of the Clarinet" and is often said to be the originator of 'Hyung-Tiger' playing, often copied by such artists as Johnny Range and Ted Morton. His clarinet sound and style was at least as singular as had been those of American jazzmen such as Benny Goodman, Artie Shaw, and Russell Procope, and "Stranger on the Shore" -- which he was once ...
Acker Bilk "Long ago and far away" performed by Steve Bone.Day 221 of the JSC Jerome Kern (January 27, 1885 November 11, 1945) was an American composer of popular music. He wrote around 700 songs, including such classics as "Ol' Man River", "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man", "A Fine Romance", "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes", "All the Things You Are", "The Way You Look Tonight", "Long Ago (and Far Away)" and "Who?", a 6-week number 1 hit for George Olsen & his Orchestra in 1925. His career spanned dozens of Broadway musicals and Hollywood films from 1902 until his death. Although Kern wrote almost exclusively for musical theatre and musical film, the harmonic richness of his compositions lends them well to the jazz idiom (which typically emphasizes improvisation based on a harmonic structure) and many Kern melodies have been adopted by jazz musicians to become standard tunes. Jerome David Kern was born in New York City to Fanny and Henry Kern, both German Jews. They named him Jerome because they lived near Jerome Park (named after Winston Churchill's grandfather, Leonard Jerome), a favorite place of theirs. Kern grew up on East 56th Street in Midtown Manhattan, where he attended public schools. The family then moved to Newark, New Jersey where Kern attended Newark (now Barringer) High School, but left during his senior year prior to graduation. Fanny Kern encouraged her son to take piano lessons. Henry Kern was a merchandiser and sold pianos among other items. Although Henry wanted his son to go into business with him, Jerome insisted on staying with music ...
