In 1954, the Vic Ash Quartet recorded with US singer Maxine Sullivan in London. Ash toured the U.S.

in 1957 and returned to play with Lewis in 1959. His ensemble was the only one representing British jazz at the Newport Jazz Festival that year. Ash remained a mainstay of the British jazz scene for decades, playing in small and large ensembles including the BBC Big Band. He accompanied Frank Sinatra on tours in Europe and the Middle East from 1970 up until Sinatra's death. Ash released many albums for Pye, Nixa and MGM, mostly in the mainstream jazz tradition, and most of which are now out of print. Vic Ash's autobiography "I blew it my way" is an excellent read and is a must for those interested in this major British Jazz artist.! Read more on Last.fm.
