Ken Colyer attained something like cult status not only because of his playing but because he joined a ship in the UK,. no one seems to know what as, but then jumped ship in the States so hat he could spend time and play in NO.

This was a very very cool thing to do.

He was taciturn in the extreme. When Louis arrived in UK Colyer was among the welcoming throng.  Louis was resuaded to blow a few notes. It is reported that Colyer listened, grunted, and said `He`ll do`.
