I have a bootleg audio-cassette of [Kenny Baker's] last appearance with the Beiderbecke and All That Jazz show at Tunbridge Wells. At the end, during our encore - 'The Totally Spontaneous Officially Designated and Well-Honed Encore Blues in F' - I introduce Kenny with the words: 'the only trumpet player banned from playing within a fifty mile radius of Jericho' - whereupon Kenny explodes into his solo like a twenty-year-old: the new kid on the lock, fresh from Yorkshire, eager to show London's city slickers and the world beyond how it's done.

He did that for sixty years.  He showed the world how it's done, shared the joy and, above all, he never made the mistake of growing up.
