Acker Bilk: The Very Best
Acker Bilk was a titan of traditional jazz known for his bowler hat, striped waistcoat and his rich, vibrato-laden clarinet style. Bilk’s 1962 instrumental “Stranger on the Shore” was the UK’s top single of 1962, and the first U.S. #1 by a British artist in the era of the modern Billboard pop chart. This double disc collection contains that, and so many more classics including “Greensleeves,” “My Bucket’s Got a Hole In It,” There’s a Rainbow ‘Round My Shoulder,” “In A Persian Market,” “Marching Through Georgia,” “Stars and Stripes Forever,” “Original Dixieland One Step,” and many more. 50 superb tracks in all!
