The Big Chris Barber Band

The Big Chris Barber Band image

An icon of British traditional jazz, the trombonist, bassist and band-leader is one of the great jazz musicians of the twentieth century. 89 years old, and still he leads a band that’s a living, breathing sample of great jazz values of swing, blues feel, great ensemble playing, and top class soloing. They feature everything from early New Orleans to blues to late 20s Ellington including many favourites like “Bourbon Street Parade”, “Jubilee Stomp”, “Petite Fleur”, “Ice Cream”, “When The Saints Go Marching In” and many more. A rare chance to hear a jazz legend, with an absolutely top-notch band.
