Gig of the Year

Chris Yates has come up with the following suggestion: Nominations for the Gig of the Year.
Chris's own suggestion is:
"Gateshead Jazz Festival March, 2009 : the double bill of JOSHUA REDMAN TRIO and GUY BARKER JAZZ ORCHESTRA. The Joshua Redman Trio would have been my 'Gig of 2009' by itself, but sharing a concert with Guy Barker's terrific Jazz Orchestra...no contest, as they say."
I'll have to think about mine.
Also, perhaps two categories a general one and one involving local (local to you) musicians rather than 'visiting firemen'.
As local can mean anywhere from Newcastle to New York (and 'Old York') state clearly where the gig took place.
Please email suggestions to lanceliddle@gmail.com

My vote goes to Sheila Jordan, Brian Kellock Trio + guest Cleveland Watkiss at Gateshead Jazz Festival.
An hour of sheer delight.

I agree with Roly - this concert stands out as the most enjoyable for me. However, I think Roly might be referring to the night concert. I'll vote for the day concert which had Ian Shaw included as well. For local musicians I'd go for either one of Alan Glen's Chilli concerts or one of Paul Edis'.

I would say either The Music of Duke Ellington + Billy Strayhorn (featuring Northern Sinfonia, Guy Barker Jazz Orchestra and Tim Garland) or Julian Arguelles Trio + John Abercrombie. Alan Glen would be local gig of the year.
