CHRIS BARBER’S JAZZ BAND WITH OTTILIE PATTERSON
Artist: CHRIS BARBER’S JAZZ BAND
****DOUBLE CD FOR THE PRICE OF ONE **** ‘Barber In Berlin’ is one of the most popular albums in Chris Barber’s discography (see ‘Classic Concerts Revisited’ LACD323). It was recorded at the Deutschlandhalle in Berlin in 1959 in front of a capacity crowd of 12,000. Almost exactly a year later the band was back. No-one can remember the concert being recorded, but in 2015 a set of tapes appeared and this is the resulting CD. The band is on cracking form with solo turns from all the favourites, Monty Sunshine, Pat Halcox, the leader himself and, of course, Ottilie Patterson.
