Love Supreme Jazz Festival is returning to the glorious setting of Glynde Place near Brighton from 3rd to 5th July 2015 for another weekend of world-class jazz. Love Supreme has quickly became one of the summer’s must-go festivals thanks to its spectacular setting, friendly atmosphere and 3 days of jazz, blues, soul, funk and hip hop.
Joining the recently announced Rebecca Ferguson, Saturday has been bolstered by the addition of legendary Sly & The Family Stone’s Larry Graham, who will be bringing his Graham Central Station to the main stage for the now customary Love Supreme Saturday funk workout. Expect classic Sly & The Family Stone hits, expect ‘Everyday People’, expect ‘Family Affair’, expect groove and funk!
They will be joined by the effortlessly cool Neneh Cherry, who is enjoying a renaissance off the back of her critically acclaimed, Four Tet produced ‘Blank Project’ album. Fresh from working on the Oscar-winning soundtrack for ‘Selma’, Jason Moran will be bringing his incredible ‘All Rise: A Joyful Elegy for Fats Waller’ album to life in the idyllic setting of the South Downs. Rounding out the additions to Saturday’s bill are blues’n’roll firebrands Vintage Trouble.
Joining the bill on Sunday will be the seductive and soulful Lisa Stansfield playing a set of her classic hits. Also joining Sunday’s bill are the vibrant afrobeat collective Ibibio Sound Machine, acclaimed Brainfeeder producer Taylor Mcferrin and eclectic bandleader David Lyttle.
Finally, it wouldn’t be Friday night at Love Supreme without Jazz FM’s Funky Sensation opening proceedings in the arena with their famed club night spinning classic tunes until the small hours.
All of these join the previously released line up including Van Morrison, Chaka Khan, Hugh Masekela, The Bad Plus Joshua Redman, Dianne Reeves & Candi Staton.
