Jazz in Great Harwood

Johnny Barnes

Johnny Barnes     October 1977

Almost a local and a regular visitor to the club, Johnny could have earned a living as a stand-up comedian but jazz would have been the poorer for it . I caught him here adding a C melody sax to his complement and handling both with skill.

Johnny is one of those who have kept the flag of jazz flying and who seems to get as much fun out of it as he gives.
