Ken Colyer remains revered today by devotees of pure New Orleans Jazz, who respect his un-compromising mission to preserve the sanctity of the music, and his many fans still refer to him as 'The Guvnor'. In the 1950s he was at the forefront of the revival of New Orleans Jazz, and along the way, the development of Skiffle, Blues, and Rock 'n' Roll in Britain.
