Trombonist Chris Barber is the sole survivor of a legendary trio of British jazz musicians called the Three Bs – Barber, Bilk and Ball.
King of the clarinet Acker Bilk passed away a month ago and Kenny Ball died in March last year.
Barber was the architect of the ’60s blues-rock explosion which gave birth to rock giants like The Rolling Stones and The Beatles.
