The Peartree Monday Jazz Club in Welwyn Garden City welcomed back Barry Palser and his Savoy Jazz Band on 21st May. Always favourites with Peartree fans, the band included two Acker Bilk stars, trumpeter Mike Cotton and banjoist Tony Pitt. And who needs drums when Tony Pitt is around! In Barry’s own words, it was as ever “All Good Stuff!”. Indeed, just as it has been since he first formed Barry Palser’s Savoy Jazz Men back in 1959.
