Chris Barber Jazz Diaries - Featuring Mark Knopfler (REPOST)



BBC Radio 2 studios Maida Vale, London, UK

February 5th, 2001

This is a very nice radio show that Mark Knopfler did for Chris Barber in his radio show the Jazz Diaries. They recorded four songs exclusively for this show, two instrumentals and two with vocals. Interesting to hear Mark Knopfler play with a jazz band and nice interview in this one hour show. Mark Knopfler joins at about half time in the show - the part about Mark Knopfler is from track 8 to track 18. Goin' home is not the Mark Knopfler song, and it is played only by the Chris Barber Band, also recorded exclusively for this radio show. Perfect sound quality.

Asking for your cooperation

As you all know, markknopflermusic is not affiliated or sponsored by Mark Knopfler in any way, I do this because I love the music of Mark and like to share it with everyone. However, the site generates expenses, and this has been a hard year in which I have been unemployed.

I don't like asking for anything but right now, if I don't ask for your donations for the site expenses, and what little we do here to share the wonderful music of Mark, will shut down in a month or so.

You can donate here and thank your for all the years you've shown support to this little space. Any donation makes a great difference.
