This DVD presents an incredible night at the Musikhuset Aarhus in Denmark in front of 1200 enthusiastic fans. Featured are the lineup for Chris Barber's Jazz and Blues Band as well as Chris Barber's Original Jazz Band of 1954 featuring Lonnie Donegan.

By the time this concert DVD was recorded in Denmark in June 1995, the Original Chris Barber's Jazz Band of 1954 had played more than one hundred 40-year Jubilee Concerts. What sets apart this DVD concert is the terrific enthusiasm and enjoyment visually evident in the great performances by Chris, Pat, Monty, Jim, Ron, and Lonnie: they and the music sound as fresh as ever, both in the ensemble pieces and the feature spots for Monty and Lonnie, both performed with outstanding talent and engaging humour. The original band plays the first half of the concert, while the Chris Barber Jazz and Blues Band takes over after the intermission.
