What a weekend!
From the 4th to 6th July 2014 Jazz FM's Love Supreme returned to the beautiful Glynde Place, East Sussex for 3 days of jazz and soul.
Jazz FM’s Funky Sensation got the party started on Friday night as over a thousand festival goers packed out The Arena, as Nigel Williams, John Osborne, Chris Philips, Jeff Young and Pru Fiddy all stepped up the decks for an evening of classic jazz funk, disco and soul.
As the weekend unfolded, there was something for everyone, from Laura Mvula to GRAMMY Awards winners’ Snarky Puppy and Mr Gregory Porter, whose set was quite simply magical; right back round to the Caribbean beats of Courtney Pine in the sunshine.
Saturday Headliner Jamie Cullum's set left everyone in the crowd with one word on the tip of their tongue ‘WOW!’ On Sunday, Soul II Soul got the crowd off their feet with their hands up bellowing out the chorus to ‘Back To Life!’
Following a brilliant performance by James Tormé in the Ronnie Scott’s Big Top, he made a speedy transfer to the Jazz FM vintage airstream for his Sunday Afternoon show from the festival still in full tux! Curtis Stigers and Christian McBride were similarly suited and booted when they stopped by the studio to have chat with James. David Freeman rounded off an amazing day curating the best blues on the Matua Sessions Stage with an astonishing 6 live sessions during his Blues & Boogie Show.
With a live set from hip hop legends De La Soul on the Main Stage and the last tones of experimental Polar Bear still ringing through the field the curtain fell on Love Supreme 2014.
A big thank you to everyone who attended and made the weekend so special, we thought we’d let Jamie and Laura have the last words on the weekend…
“This festival is only two years old and already feels like it’s here to stay forever.” Jamie Cullum
“This is the best festival I’ve ever been to, straight up.” Laura Mvula
So same time, same place next year? #lovesupremefest
