Almost 1,400 jazz fans crammed into the Regency Ballroom to see Somerset-born, black bowlered, Acker Bilk. Hundreds more heard the concert broadcast on the BBC's Jazz Club programme, introduced by Derek Jones from the ballroom. Nice. The audience were the first to hear 'Coffee and Acker Cake', the theme from the recently completed film 'Band of Thieves'.
