Ted Heath was probably one of the most popular big-band leaders in the uk from the 1950s. His rings played modernized golf swing music which was constantly danceable but sometimes had beneficial solos played within the custom. Heath began playing tenor horn before he turned to trombone when he was 14. He spent an interval playing like a road musician and was found out by Jack port Hylton, who employed him for his music group. Heath had lengthy stints like a sideman with a number of top dance rings, including ensembles led by Bert Firman (1924-1925), Hylton once again (1925-1927), Ambrose (1928-1936), Sydney Lipton (1936-1939), and Geraldo (1939-1944). Heath started leading his personal big music group in 1944 and, through regular looks on the air, trips, and concerts, he quickly became children name in Britain. The improvements of bebop had been largely ignored and only playing swing-oriented graphs, even though some of Heath’s soloists (especially Ronnie Scott, Danny Moss, Don Rendell, and Kenny Baker) became significant as jazz players. Heath, whose music group was usually of high musicianship and utilized “Pay attention to the Music” as its theme track, also became popular in america, going to the U.S. many times beginning in 1956. His orchestra documented quite frequently beginning in 1944 (mainly for Decca and London), including ten albums in 1959 only.
