Bob Wallis

Bob Wallis was a feisty British jazzman who had a handful of chart successes in the early 1960s, during the “trad” boom that directly preceded the coming of the Beatles and all the other Merseyside groups that decimated the number of UK jazz bands at that time.

Wallis was a trumpeter with real drive and energy - one of his heroes was Henry Red Allen - as well as being full of life, remarkable for someone who suffered from ill health for most of his years. He played with his own band for much of that time, the Storyville Jazzmen, though earlier and later in his career he played with other bands as well.
