Buy now!Big Chief Live at the Bull : £12.00 + 75p P&P

"A Big Chief gig at The Bull in Barnet: what more could any ageing child of the late sixties' jazz/blues revival wish for?

Actually that's a little unfair on the audience, peppered with young people as it was. But as the great Humphrey Lyttleton once observed, there are three good things about Barnet - the White Lion Pub, the football team and the band, Big Chief." - Chris Hall

Buy now!Steppin' Out : £5.49 + 75p P&P

It is unlikely that the music of Big Chief will ever appeal to the purist. The band's tendency to gleefully hop and skip between styles and continents can leave some feeling dizzy. To these we would say, we come in friendship and mean no harm.

Here then, is and offering of township, reggae, jazz and blues. And we hope you like it.

Track list

Fiyela, Come Sunday, Stranger In My Own Home Town, Steppin' Up In Class

Features

Recorded & mixed by Wan Hewitt at Scarlet Studio, London, N17 9QU.

Give or take, jazz is a hundred years old and has been recorded for around eighty. It has taken Big Chief nearly a quarter of a century to get its music recorded, but at last here it is - loud, lovely, and as unfashionable as ever.
