Chris Barber’s Jazz Band
The Chris Barber band has been in virtually its present form since May 1954, when they parted company with Ken Colyer, who was replaced by Pat Halcox. The only change since then has been the recent acquisition of bassist Micky Ashman from the Humphrey Lyttelton band. They have enjoyed a terrific rise in popularity this year and are now challenging the Lyttelton band's leadership in the traditional field. Decca, Columbia and finally (permanently) Jazz Today have recorded them and they have just returned from a very successful tour of Ireland and Scotland.
Ottilie Patterson
... is yet another example of appearances being deceptive. Fragile of form, reticent and composed of demeanour yet robust vocally she presents a descriptive problem. We know that those who have heard her already recognise her worth, so to those who have yet to make her acquaintance we feel justified in promising a delightful surprise today.
