[size=150][color=orangered]A self-taught trumpeter, Ken Colyer (1928-1988 ) remains a pivotal figure in the development of Traditional Jazz in the UK. In the late 1940s he played with Mick Mulligan and formed his own band, the Crane River Jazz Band, in 1949. He served with the Merchant Navy for a number of years, giving him the opportunity to travel widely and significantly taking him to New Orleans. Here he had the opportunity to perform with a talk and perform with musicians like Kid Howard and Paul Barbarin. By the time he moved to London in 1953, he took over leadership of a band which became the Ken Colyer Jazzmen. This band featured a strong lineup with Chris Barber, Monty Sunshine, Lonnie Donnegan, Ron Bowden and Jim Bray, but musical differences led to Colyer reforming the band after little more than a year. The musicians he brought together in 1954 were equally impressive with Acker Bilk, Diz Disley and Stan Greig among them. The band recorded and opened a Festival of British Jazz at the Royal Festival Hall. His new band, with varying lineups, toured Germany and built a following throughout Europe that was to provide work for the next three decades. In the late 1950s, Colyer took up a residency at Studio 51, which became known as the Ken Colyer Club, and performed there for much of the 1960s. Stomach cancer forced him to stop playing for a while, and though he was able to return to music, the trad boom had by this time come to an end and work was harder to come by. In the 1970s, he reformed the Crane River Jazz Band for occasional tours, and also guested frequently with other bands. By 1986, illness once again caused him to retire, and he moved to France where he passed away just short of his 60th birthday.[/color][/size]
