Mr Acker Bilk English Jazz Clarinet Player dies at age 85.

Acker Bilk was a musician we all grew up with. His Stranger On The Shore from 1962 has to be one of the best remembered instrumentals ever, No 1 in the UK and US at the same time, spending a solid year on the UK top 20 and making No 1 several times.
