I recently purchased this poster promoting the Chris Barber Jazz Band and the Crane River Jazz Band in a concert at Picton Hall in Liverpool in December 1950. Barber would have been only 19 years old at the time. I find this item fascinating - it measures 3 by 4 feet and is in excellent condition. Can anyone tell me about this concert - who was in the group and anything else about his appearance there. Thank you!

- Keith Jary tp
- Ben Cohen co
- Chris Barber tb, voc
- Alex Revell cl
- Brian Baker p
- Ferdie Favager bjo
