Sennheiser have teamed up with jazz musician Chris Standring and special guest soul star Mica Paris for a one-off concert at Cadogan Hall on March 5th. In what will be a UK first, the majority of the audience will listen to the concert through top-of-the-range Sennheiser headphones, coupling the excitement, passion and unpredictability of a live performance with superior, studio-quality sound.
Following in the footsteps of Grammy-Award winning US fusion band Snarky Puppy, whose recording session for We Like It Here took place in front of a live audience, Standring will be accompanied by a full band and string section as well as a number of special guests. The first singer confirmed is soul sensation Mica Paris, with additional guests to be added in due course.
Jazz FM are media partners for the event. Nigel Williams of Jazz FM: “As someone who has been listening to great jazz artists for decades, when I heard Chris play live, I felt that his music would translate beautifully to CD but that there was an edge to the sound that can only really be captured live. This event offers the best of both worlds and is a great way of embracing both the traditional concert-going experience and advances in the way we can listen to music.”
SoulandJazzLive will be capturing this unique recording session in both 4k video and sound with partners Sennheiser.
