Chris Barber

As We Like It DVD

Review by Gary Hill

This DVD is the film version of a one-night only performance by jazz/blues legend Chris Barber.  While this film will certainly please fans of old school jazz, the inclusion of Andy Fairweather-Low on a couple tracks means that younger audiences will be drawn in, too.

Fans of rock music will probably be amazed at how many people they get on such a small stage. They pack them in. While it might have made their time on stage less enjoyable, we don't see any indication of that fact. These guys make their way through a killer jazz show and it's all captured for us on this DVD. The music ranges through a variety of styles and time periods but it never fails to entertain. I'd highly recommend this to all fans of old school jazz.

This review is available in book format (hardcover and paperback) in Music Street Journal: 2008  Volume 3 at lulu.com/strangesound.
