I was watching Boardwalk Empire earlier and, about 5th or 6th episode, the end music is that famous piece of clarinet music Acker Bilk is famous for (sorry, I have NO idea what it's called).

The episode ends, I turn the news on....right there...he's on BBC News 24 playing that exact piece.

Shivers up me spine

Strangers On The Shore would be his most famous, among none Jazz people at least. Probably that, without hearing the series.

Yep, yours was far better put together, and mine was first, my apologies for not doing the detail you did to do him justice. Hope no offense was caused.

Not just 'Acker Bilk," but "Mr. Acker Bilk."

Good memories. Mom and Dad had his albums when I was a kid. I'd bet that if I went spelunking in Dad's basement, those old albums would turn up.

As soon as I read this I could hear that song Strangers on the Shore in my mind. I haven't thought of that song in decades. Wow... music leaves such an imprint in our memories.
