The Music of Bert Ambrose and his Orchestra
We extract from Ken's archive a reel of old 78s of the music of Ambrose.
Ambrose was an English bandleader who became the leader of a highly acclaimed British dance band, the Bert Ambrose & His Orchestra, in the 1930s. His major discovery was the singer Vera Lynn who sang with his band and during the war, became known as the "Forces' Sweetheart". It was mentioned that Ken might have played with the Ambrose Orchestra in the late 40s/early 50s.
