Chris Barber had been at the forefront of the Trad Jazz Revival during the 1950s and 1960s. When it all fell apart in the mid-60s Chris Barber managed to keep the music alive and fresh which he continues to do today. In the late 1960s he added a Blues guitarist and in 1978 he added a second reed player to the front line which enabled the band to be more flexible and have a bigger sound. The well known Rock drummer, Pete York, also joined the band. The repertoire on these CDs ranges from Trad Jazz standards, to Duke Ellington tunes, to Jazz/Rock tunes like Dick Morrissey's Heavy Henry, to Pete York's drum feature, Extension 345. This collection is a double-CD-for-the-price-of-one set based on a triple LP release which was one of the classic Barber releases of the 1970s.
