      I recall seeing Kenny's band in a jazz club in Yiewsley, Middlesex, about 10 miles west of London in the late 1950's before he found international fame. Although Kenny played trumpet, he carried around at that time a slightly dented cornet. When a Bix number was requested by a member of the audience, he would open an old case, take out that cornet and do a very good performance "Bix style".
