  • Bob Barnard (2002)
    Bob Barnard is one of the most highly regarded jazz musicians ever to come from Australia.

    Barnard grew up in a musical family and started on cornet with a local brass band when twelve. His first professional job was with his mother's band at fourteen. Introduced to jazz by his father, Bob was a founding member of brother Len's South City Stompers in 1948. He moved to Sydney permanently in June 1962 as a member of the Graeme Bell All Stars and remained with them until mid-1967.

    Bob formed his own jazz band in 1974 touring with it throughout Australia, Asia, Europe and the US. The band held long residencies at some of Sydney's popular hotels, particularly the Orient in the Rocks area.

    Bob is a regularly featured guest at festivals and concerts in the US, Britain and Europe, and has recorded with top American, European and English jazzmen.
