What a joy to be reading the superlative things being said about Bob
Barnard. For a good number of years I have considered Bob to be my
favorite living trumpet/cornet player. A few years ago we made a CD titled
SMACKAROONEY, which is a tune composed by him. In addition to that
number,included on the CD are some tunes called Black Stump Stomp (by
Barnard), THE WOMBAT (by Roger Bell, Graeme Bell's brother), and - of
course - ALONG THE ROAD TO GUNDAGAI. Too bad we didn't have a didgeridoo
in the studio with all that fine Aussie influence.
We, Natural Gas JB, were delighted to be the warm-up band for Bob 4 months
ago for a concert he gave here in the San Francsco area. He proved again
that he is most deserving of all the good comments recently made about both
his talents and person.
