The Great British Jazz Band


Star studded with ten of the best of Britain's top swing musicians, The Great British Jazz Band is one of Britain's most exciting jazz ensembles.

It is the final fruition of an ambition held for many years by its co-leaders trumpeter Digby Fairweather and trombonist Pete Strange. GBJB uses pairs of instrument on the front line somewhat in the manner of Eddie Condon groups and the West Coast Dixielanders like Matty Mattlock and Lawson-Haggart.

Since the death of Condon, the demise of the much-lamented Alex Welsh Band and the break up of the World's Greatest Jazz Band, there has been a severe hold in this kind of mainstream jazz. Those who love the music will give thanks for the band which has now stepped into the breach!

With virtuosi like John Barnes, Roy Williams and other stars in this All-Star Band that this supreme combination of articulation and imagination blends together to produce this world class aggregation.
