From an article about Henry James Allen, Jr, jazz great

“In the fall of 1959 Red accompanied Kid Ory and his Dixielanders to Europe – it was Red’s first visit and he enjoyed it immensely, as did European audiences, reviewers, and critics. Red was particularly well-received in Britain and would return again in 1963 and 1964, this time to play with the Alex Welsh Band. During the ’64 tour, he received an award in Manchester for his contributions to jazz music.”
