Self-taught multi-instrumentalist Alan Arnold describes the good times of a lifelong career playing trumpet and bass parts of traditional mainstream jazz, locally around Essex, nationally, and internationally. Playing a variety of clubs, festivals, radio, and commercial gigs with the Cosmopolitan Jazz Band, and later Tom Collins Band, alongside many household names, Alan ultimately reflects they fulfilled ‘what it's all about’: stirring happiness and enjoyment in the audiences they serve.
