Ace Cannon

John "Ace" Cannon (born May 5, 1934) is an Americantenor and alto saxophonist. He played and toured with Hi Records stablemate Bill Black's Combo, and started a solocareer with his record "Tuff" in 1961, using the Black combo as his backing group. "Tuff" hit #17 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in 1962, and the follow-up single "Blues (Stay Away from Me)" hit #36 that same year.  In April 1965, he released Ace Cannon Live (HL 12025); according to the liner notes by Nick Pesce the album was recorded in front of a live audience inside Hi's recording studio, and Pesce claims this was the first time such an album had ever been recorded (as opposed to previous live albums recorded in concert venues).  Read full text here >>> Ace Cannon
