Ottilie Patterson

Ottilie Patterson is a blues singer best known for her performances and recordings with the Chris Barber Jazz Band in the late-1950s and early-1960s. The vocalist Patterson joined in 1954 the Chris Barber band when she was Barber's girlfriend, (they married in 1959). Aided by remarkably consistent personnel, the Barber band was soon one of the UK's leading traditional groups and was well placed to take advantage of the surge of interest in this form of jazz in the late 50s and early 60s. Barber experienced a “freak” hit in the pop charts in 1959 when his arrangement of Sydney Bechet's “Petite Fleur” became a huge hit (No. 3 in the UK).
