Cultural evening... One man band...

A rare social event yesterday. After working on some projects, it was a train down to London to the BARBICAN: love the feel of it after dark when the apartment lights come on above the lake with the fountains and the seating pods. Inside is always buzzing too with a range of different people using it for different purposes. Outside there was some amazing snow which swirled around the place...
The occasion was a gig by Pat Metheny, who I first saw live in 1982 !! Have seen him numerous times since, most recently when his group performed "The Way Up"

The project is called ORCHESTRION - an earlier blog post contained a video, and this was the only UK date for the project.

There is a review on Jazzwise
And for a picture of the ORCHESTRION itself, see HERE - thanks to the Goldsmith family

A great concert: out to wander back along London Wall, guided by my iPhone to my hotel...
