Gig of the Year. David Sanborn & Bob James @ The London Jazz Festival. Barbican, November 16, 2013.


David Sanborn (alto); Bob James (piano); Scott Colley (bass); Steve Gadd (drums).
My ticket to the concert was a wild card, a mystery trip as the group were unknown to me. My mind was a blank canvas. By the end of the first piece a rainbow of colour had been painted.
I have since reflected on why the occasion had such a profound effect on me.
My conclusion is simple - keep jazz live - the impossible is possible.
Flore.
