Jazz Legend Chris Barber - In Concert
"When you can release an album that has artists such as Van
Morrison, Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton and Mark Knopfler on it
then you know you are held in high esteem in the music world" The Telegraph
Chris Barber performs live on 'Later ... With Jools Holland'
One of the UK's most influential band-leaders and a bona fide Jazz Legend, Chris Barber celebrates his 67th Anniversary as band-leader with a Europe-wide concert tour, including a limited number of UK dates.
Inspired by the 'King Oliver Creole Jazz Band', Chris formed his first Band in 1949 at the age of nineteen and has since gone on to become Europe's most successful jazz artists. His influence can also be seen across the music spectrum in bands and artistes such as The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Mark Knopfler, Eric Burdon, John Mayall, Eric Clapton, Van Morrison and countless other leading jazz and blues performers.
Now with his 10-piece band, featuring a 7-strong front line, Chris plays a selection of his favourite music: from his roots in New Orleans style in ‘Bourbon Street Parade’ to the early music of Duke Ellington and Sidney Bechet ... before going back to ‘When the Saints’! The Big Chris Barber Band combine all these ingredients into an exciting, and often moving, evening of world-class jazz.
