Sitting here listening to Ice Cream, live at The Royal Festival Hall, October,1964. The most uplifting jazz record ever? For the depressed, throw away your tablets and listen to this record on repeat and your blues will be banished. Pure brilliance!
Hello Neil ! Is absolute rigth Ice cream is the best. My Favorit ever is Chris + Acker CD Titele "That`s It Then " from Dec. 1996 Manchester+ Harrogate. ( timeless record ) not only a Name !!!
not heard the Barber/Bilk record you mention. I have just recently found this website; amazed at the International following for Chris. On "Ice Cream", I have another recording but it is studio as opposed to live and lacks the sparkle of the Royal Festival Hall version. Monty Sunshine's clarinet - has there ever been a more sublime instrument?
Definitely agree, we just last week saw the band in Poole in Dorset it was fantastic as usual. Chris you are the Best Thank you.
