Saturday, 6 Nov. 1999 / Festsaal Messe Basel
Chris Barber, Sammy Rimington, Lillian Boutté, Oscar Klein, Karl Bernhard Rau, Keith Nichols, Bob van Oven & Peter Schmidli / Chris Barber Jazz & Blues Band
Sensational! Band leaders from all over Europe found their way to the Messe Basel for a unique all-star concert thanks to the negotiation skills of Basel jazz promoter Dänny Tobler. This once in a lifetime and thus simultaneous world premier and finale could not be missed by any fan of classic jazz. As an appetizer another delicacy was served which needs no further introduction: the Chris Barber Jazz & Blues Band.
