Fryer Barnhart International All Stars
World-renowned American jazz musicians Jeff Barnhart and Jim Fryer are joined in this fantastic band by the UK’s top jazz musicians to produce an exciting traditional jazz sound. Included in this star-powered ensemble are the following:

– UK’s top Sidney Bechet-style reedman George Huxley
– Bix and Armstrong devotee Gordon Whitworth
– Nick Ward – the UK’s most sought-after traditional style drummer
– Brian Mellor (with his tasty banjo and guitar)
– Annie Hawkins, our leading lady and the only exponent of the ‘smiling and slapping bass’

The group was founded in 1999 and has performed all over the UK and in select locations on both coasts of the US. With four top-reviewed CDs including Fryer-Barnhart International All Stars, Jubilee, Alive and Kickin’ and A Break in the Lakes, Fryer-Barnhart performs to venues packed with fans eager to see if they sound as good live as they do on a recording. We can let you in on a little secret…they do!

The repertoire includes hot music of the 20s and 30s from Bechet and Armstrong to Morton and Waller
