Trombonist, Jim Fryer, and pianist/vocalist, Jeff Barnhart, tour the UK twice a year surrounding the Keswick Jazz Festival in May and the Bude Jazz Festival at the end of August and have done so for over ten years. In that time they have built up quite a following on the Traditional Jazz Scene. One of the features of their visits has been the formation on the International All-Star Jazz Band. This band comprises many of the UK's own popular players on the scene - three of whom are band leaders in their own right. The band has three previous albums on the Lake label and, like this one, they have all been recorded before an audience in the superb Theatre By The Lake in Keswick.
