Jazz At Accrington Con Club

Benny Waters
Benny Waters     April 1980

A real veteran and a young eighty-year old when he came to Accrington. He was backed by the local Riverside Jazzmen and the much younger men had to work hard to keep up with his drive and enthusiasm. His shirt gave one the impression that he had decided to grow old disgracefully!

An article on Benny from the American National Public Radio site.
