Chris Barber is one of the most important pioneers of European jazz. This DVD celebrates his fiftieth anniversary as a professional musician. Recorded at Germany's Hot Jazz Festival 2002, he presents his new eleven-piece BIG CHRIS BARBER BAND. And what a pleasure it is - the trombonist and his virtuoso bandmates confidently switch between New Orleans jazz and a tribute to the great Duke Ellington, playing swinging blues and managing to inject new life into old favourites like Sweet Georgia Brown.
