Jazz orient
Highlights from a classic concert.
Great live versions of some of their album tracks here stand beside great improvisations, highlights of a great night captured on this recording available exclusively from this website.

Jazz Orient's concert was at one of the world's most prestigious venues - The Purcell Room at the South Bank Arts Centre. A hot summer night. Amazing visuals were projected on a screen behind the band. All in all it was a special night and the band mixed old favourites with spontaneous imrprovisations

The night was so hot that the South Bank DAT recorder broke down and only caught half the concert. The half recorded still had plenty of gems to enjoy. What would the album be with the other half of the concert recorded?...we will never know - It still is a great record of a great night.

Manjit Singh had not played with the band before that night.
