One of the original British jazz legends and an icon of traditional jazz, Chris Barber celebrates 70 years as leader with this special concert featuring his 10-piece band, one of the finest of its kind in the world. Barber was a key figure in the ‘beat boom’ of the 60s, introducing legendary American blues musicians to British audiences, and his band have spent the last half-century keeping the spirit of jazz and blues alive performing prolifically across five continents. This line-up, inspired by the great Ken Colyer Jazz Men, features everything from New Orleans to blues to late ‘20s Ellington, played with characteristic panache and skill.
