  • Description

    Ben Cohen is one of the legendary backroom boys of British Traditional Jazz. He first came to notice in Chris Barber's amateur band in 1950. He based his style on that of early Louis Armstrong and over the years developed a reputation as a powerful lead player in any band he was in. He stuck religiously to playing the cornet rather than the trumpet and was only ever semi-professional throughout his career. Ben was a popular figure on the UK Jazz scene and for many years led his Armstrong inspired Hot 5.

    This CD demonstrates that he was not rooted to one style. Here he fronts the Sonny Dee All-Stars, a Chicago style band, and his blistering attack and superb solos show just what a fine player he was.
