The Barbican, London, November 14 2014.
What a night! Working with Low Latency Productions and Serious events, we provided cameras and operators for this live BBC Arts red Button production, simulcast on BBC Radio 3. Tremendous work by Director Jonathan Haswell to keep the live feed rolling for over 3 hours, including through the break where we covered a chat show with the stars of Jazz Voice before rolling straight into the second act of the show. The broadcast was transmitted to BBC Scotland via internet/3G using the WMT transmitter which performed flawlessly throughout.
Arranged, scored and conducted by Guy Barker, this year’s extravaganza included Dee Dee Bridgewater, Emma Smith, Georgie Fame, Jacqui Dankworth, Jacob Banks, Kurt Elling, Natalie Williams, Sachal andVulaMalinga, alongside a fantastic 40-piece orchestra. The evening was hosted by award-winning broadcaster and singer Jumoké Fashola and inimitable jazz vocalist, producer and broadcaster Ian Shaw.
