Artist Detail 

Ace Cannon, saxophone virtuoso, a return to classically executed, quality musicianship. A musician whose records have consistently appeared on Billboard's and Cashbox's charts.

Ace Cannon started his career in Memphis,> Tennessee, recording on many of the 1950's hits on SUN RECORDS. Says Sam Phillips, quote: "Ace Cannon is the greatest saxophone player who ever lived, but then he came out of the same stables as Carl Perkins, Elvis, Jerry Lee, Bill Justice, etc." In 1959 he started with the BILL BLACK COMBO, (which was one of the most popular instrumental groups of their era,) in theU.S. and the Bahamas, where he traveled on all concert dates and played the lead saxophone on all the original recordings. They appeared on the most prominent TV shows of that era, including The Ed Sullivan Show, The Merv Griffin Show, Dick Clark's American Bandstand, and The Buddy Dean Show in Baltimore , MD.
