Live from Love Supreme Festival 2015
Record numbers of people joined Jazz FM for its third Love Supreme festival from 3rd to 5th July 2015 with Van Morrison spectacularly headlining the main stage on Sunday.
As the weekend unfolded there was a great reaction to live performances from all the stages, including Hugh Masekela, Dianne Reeves and Soul Artist of the Year Jarrod Lawson. On Saturday, Jazz FM’s own Yamaha Jazz FM Replay Project big band made up of amateur musicians was overwhelmed with love from the crowds as they kicked off Saturday’s proceedings in The Arena. Hackney Colliery Band took the crowd from rain to sunshine opening Sunday with an energetic set. Innovative pianist Jason Moran performed his tribute to Fats Waller, complete with head mask.
There were over 27 hours of live broadcasts on Jazz FM including Jeff Young, James Torme and Lynn Parsons with top guests like Chaka Khan, Terence Blanchard, Larry Graham, Omar and Bill Laurance all stopping by the Jazz FM Routemaster.
