Bill Nile was a local star bandleader in Cheltenham, UK from the late 1950s. At one time he recorded for Joe Meek and apparently he turned down Brian Jones (later Rolling Stones).
By 1970 Bill's was one of the leading bands in the London jazz scene. Then in 1973 he quit playing and moved to Scotland but kept in touch by promoting local jazz concerts.
