Barry Palser’s Savoy Jazz Men Back in 1959, when Barry Palser first formed the Savoy Jazz Men. It was ‘just for fun’. For the pleasure of making music, for the thrill of creating their own personal jazz sound. It didn’t matter if nobody saw them play… if nobody listened… if nobody danced… it was simply for their enjoyment. Nowadays that enjoyment of ‘making music’ is still evident in their performance but they now know the value of entertainment, they know that people do come just to see them, do listen and do dance and the know that paying customers, ‘the punter’ is very aware and very important. During the five decades they have made 5 LP records, 3 CD’s 2 Videos 3 National broadcasts, five T.V. appearances and have played festivals in Holland, Germany, Italy, France, Belgium and Eire. They have also appeared at festival’s in the U.K. i.e Bude, Upton, Caister, Hemsby, Pakefield, Prestatyn, Sand Bat and Osmington Bay. Barry has composed three jazz tunes for ‘Jazz in Duketown’, ‘The Herboro Sommerfest’ and ‘Symbio Microbiology Co’ (all of these can be heard on the ‘More’ album). The personnel have naturally changed over the years but Barry Palser, the founder of the band, is still blowing strong and has honed his leadership skills during this time to become one of the best ‘front men’ in the business. Barry Palser is a fine, punchy trombonist who believes that entertainment is a critical factor in jazz and is prepared to back his belief with action. His vocals on the jazz standards and his vocal treatment of ballads also help the popularity of the band
