This was one of those magic gigs where you can't believe it really happened. We got to sit right up front for the ultimate sound and view. The band was made up of young upcoming musicians led by the jazz legend master Chris Potter and featured a set of entirely new music written especially for the band.
Chris played some of the most amazing jazz solos I've ever heard. His new music was wonderful, full of vitality and the arrangement of instruments created a rich texture for the soloists to create upon. I really hope it all gets released.
I was particularly impressed by the young vibes player Jonny Mansfield who after a killer solo from Chris calmly picked up the solo and kept the same energy and standard.
Also particularly worthy of note for me was the violin solo from John Garner which was wonderfully intricate and full of spontaneity and invention.
All for £17 a seat. Steal.
