This is not a Chris Barber CD, but it should be of interest to visitors to the Chris Barber website because it includes performances by seven present and former members of the Big Chris Barber Band. They and the nine other versatile musicians on this entertaining CD clearly enjoyed a tremendous amount of fun recording these tracks -- and for a very good cause, as explained in the CD liner notes.

The music ranges from out-and-out New Orleans Jazz to tightly arranged Hodges-Strayhorn mainstream, with strong solos and ensemble playing by all concerned.
