Choose your Gig of the Year

Gig of the Year? Tough choice most years. This year I've narrowed it down to two, paradoxically six months apart to the very day.
March 14 - Gregory Porter at Hoochie Coochie. An incredible experience hearing the great man up close in a small venue.
September 14 - Richard Pite's Jazz Repertory Company recreating Jazz At The Philharmonic at London's Cadogan Hall. The 1940s alive and swinging. I was sitting in the gallery which is exactly where the music was aimed at.
At grass roots level, any of the Strictly Smokin' Big Band gigs - particularly the Sunday afternoon sessions at Hoochie.
They are my thoughts let's be having yours!
Lance.
