Chris Barber OBE (86) is one of the last British Jazz legends around and an icon of traditional jazz in the United Kingdom. For more than 68 years he has been active in the music scene with promoting, recording and releasing music and touring with his band. A milestone.
This year he and his band: The Big Chris Barber Band will celebrate 100 Years of Jazz, under the theme: Centenary of Jazz.
In early 1917 the very first Jazz record was released by the Original Dixieland Jass Band: Livery Stable Blues. In the beginning 90’s, Chris Barber and partnering label Timeless Records re-released this very special record under the sub label Timeless Historical Series, where Chris coordinated the label as co-producer.
Now, in 2017 (a century later) the record from Original Dixieland Jass Band will have existed for 100 years. A moment to celebrate for Chris.
