Product Description

Product Description

If proof were needed how widely Chris is held in high esteem by his fellow musicians, it’s the visitors from the rock world who deliver it. Eric Clapton jams with Chris, Keith Emerson welcomes Chris into his T-Bones, Mark Knopfler plays beautifully with the band, and Van Morrison eclipses the band’s own former vocal star Lonnie Donegan with a trio of performances that count among his best recordings.

Chris Barber’s Jazz Band, which can trace its lineage back to 1949, became a beacon of traditional styles of jazz in the UK. This collection includes some of the early high points, as the band welcomes some of its American heroes into the line-up including ex-Louis Armstrong clarinettists Ed Hall and Joe Darensbourg, legendary trombonists Trummy Young and Eddie Durham. From early in its career, Chris’s band would also welcome blues stars. This collection is particularly rich in terms of the blues connection, with Brownie McGhee remembering highlights of his tour with the band, and examples of Chris’s collaborations with Muddy Waters and James Cotton.

The Barber band toured with many a gospel singer, too, and Professor Alex Bradford hones the band’s singing skills on this collection. There are home-grown blues connections, starting with the band’s own long-term singer Ottilie Patterson, plus Rory Gallagher and Paul Jones. The guests, however, are only part of the story. It’s Chris and his own band of excellent musicians that are at the core of this collection, proving exactly why they are national treasures.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent listening for jazz or blues fans 4 May 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I wouldn't class myself as much of Jazz fan, I've only come across Chris Barber through his appearance with John Mayall, but this is a fantastic album with some lovely foot-tapping songs. Cream of the crop for me have to be 'I'll Be Rested', with Paul Jones, and Trummy Young on a fantastic version of 'Georgia On My Mind'.

5.0 out of 5 stars MEMORIES OF A MUSIC LEGEND ! 12 Jun 2011
By pete clack TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
When lifetime or music achievement awards are handed out ther would not be a more worthy winner than Chris Barber.For some he's lead a jazz band and big band for many years, but more than that he's introduced and inspired over that time some amazing musicians to us, he's brought the great American blues legends such as Muddy Waters to the UK and the first to do so,and in that has directly inspired so manyu of our modern European blues and jazz players.A manresected throughout music and should long ago have recieved a knighthood for his services to music.He's now eighty and still doesn't seem to slow down much at all.So to this CD,or two to be honest, and if there's a better release this year I'll be amazed,let's see you don't only get Chris with his various band members but you get Eric Clapton with an excellent version of 'Weepin' Willow',Rory Gallagher,Jeff Healey,Van Morrison,Jools Holland, Mark Knopfler, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGee,Lonnie Donegan (former Chris band member in his early days),Andy Fairweather Low, his wife the wonderful Ottillie Patterson, and Paul Jones with a superb track of 'I'll Be Rested'.Throughout a wonderful mix of jazz,blues and gospel,every track worth inclusion not a dud among them.There are standout tracks but it's a pure listening pleasure whether you like blues or jazz or music in general, consistently well played with some of the best musicians over the last forty years plus on thirty odd tracks you'll play again and again.Best value release of the years in quality ,price and pure listening enjoyment.Utterly unmissable.To Chris Barber thank you so much for yourt contribution to music,your enthusiasm ,long may it continue now Your Majesty about this knighthood be a good year to give it to this great man of music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Jazz CD ever 19 May 2011
By SamB07
Format:Audio CD
Bought this CD for my dad, who's a massive jazz fan, after reading a glowing review in the Sunday Times. He rates it as the best jazz compilation he's ever heard. Particular praise goes to the duet with the late John Slaughter.

What a great collection. The 'sleeve notes' by Chris are worth the price of the CD alone. It is like a history of British trad jazz and Blues.
