The Big Chris Barber Band, In Concert On The Isle Of Wight (DVD)

OK Entertainment Channel / Chris Barber Collection CBJBDVD5001, recorded in November 2008 and released in 2009.

A new video of a complete concert with the Big Chris Barber Band.

Chris Barber fans know that they should always check the CD corner at concerts. Beside "normal" CDs there are often CDs and DVDs for sale that are not available in shops or by mail-order services. This happened with the latest CD, "Chris Barber at Blenheim", as well as now with the new DVD, "In Concert On The Isle Of Wight" (recorded Nov 27th, 2008 at the Medina Theatre, Newport).

This DVD features the present members of the band and it is the first recording with the newest members: Zoltan Sagi (cl, saxes), Pete Rudeforth (tp), and John Service (tb). The complete show was filmed and has been carefully remastered. It is a great document of the current tour – perhaps with one exception: "Ice Cream" is NOT on this DVD! There are no gimmicks, no "bonus tracks" or material to fill the DVD. It's just as it should be, a concert by the Big Chris Barber Band. So sit on your couch, switch on the Television/DVD player, and enjoy 90 minutes of great music. And if you do not yet have this DVD, look forward to the next concert by watching this short trailer.
