Official Site : Over the years, Chris Barber‘s Jazz Band evolved into the Chris Barber Jazz and Blues Band, a richly-textured eight-piece group, blending brass, reeds, and electric guitar into a unique and unmistakable mix of blues and jazz.

@allmusic :

@last.fm : At the end of a year there was a bustup and Ken Colyer stormed out to start up his own band and Chris Barber took over the band and renamed it. From an earlier conversation I had with Lonnie Donegan, I was led to believe the bust up concerned Ken Colyer and him.

@Discogs : Over the years, Chris Barber‘s Jazz Band evolved into Chris Barber Jazz And Blues Band, The, an eight-piece group, mixing the styles of blues and jazz. The demarcation of this transition is March 1973. At the end of 2001 Chris extended his band with three more musicians into The Big Chris Barber Band.
