ELITE SYNCOPATIONS - Chris Barber's Jazz Band

ELITE SYNCOPATIONS - Chris Barber's Jazz Band
CD / Product Number: LACD294

Sold Out
Very few Trad Jazz albums were what we would now call 'concept' albums. An exception was this classic one from 1960 which was devoted to Ragtime tunes. The band adopts a variety of approaches ranging from a strictly 'as written' one to treating the melody like any other jazz tune with plenty of scope for improvisation. The original LP set is enhanced by some tunes previously unreleased plus two tracks of Chris Barber's ragtime arrangements recorded when Chris was in Ken Colyer's Jazzmen in 1953.
