RIP Chris Barber

I missed this when it happened, a few days ago.  Chris was a giant of the British Trad Jazz scene.  He's probably remembered more in conjunction with his clarinet player Monty Sunshine's hit recording of Sidney Bechet's Petite Fleur.  I loved that recording and learned it note for note (cadenza included) as a schoolboy.  Sadly, arthritis has robbed me of that thrill.

RIP Chris Barber
