    2021 Who died this year

    I donít know how I missed this. A giant of the British jazz scene and a good friend of my late dad.

    A huge figure in British popular music, whether it was jazz or blues. It was Barber who brought over the USA blues players that inspired Alexis Korner, John Mayall, Clapton, Beck, Green, etc.

    I think he was still touring until a few years ago.
    Youíre right. You did
