Love Supreme Festival is looking forward to putting on a festival in Summer 2022. In the meantime it has launched a successful Love You Live podcast series. The first episode was put out on 15 June and we have has just reached Episode 6.
As Chief Exec and Founder of the Love Supreme Festival Ciro Romano, who introduces the show, has just written to us:
“Its been really positive so far – we were podcast of the week in the Guardian and Top 5 In the Spotify music podcast charts……”
The Episodes so far have been:
- Gregory Porter
- Tom Misch
- Elvis Costello
- Candi Staton
- Gary Bartz (launched today 20 July 2021 – Spotify Link)
Gary Bartz takes a swipe at “corporate”, “institutionalised” Euro-Jazz and says:
“The art form, the root is hearing. It’s the strongest sense we have. Because sound can touch you, Sounds can shape you. Sounds can give you a headache (laughs). Sounds can do a lot of things. That’s how powerful it is.”
The Love Supreme website gives the background and credits the people involved
“The last year has given us time to think about the power of live music. To that end, we have gathered some of the biggest names to have played our festival (and a few we hope to bring to the South Downs in the coming years) to talk about how their experiences of live music helped shape them personally and creatively.
“This podcast is a collection of our guests’ tales ranging from legendary nights with Miles Davis to emotional experiences with Tom Waits in Paris, a transcendental Stevie Wonder in the south of France and even a couple of stories from Love Supreme.
“Subscribe to Love You Live now wherever you get your podcasts to hear it first.
A very special thanks to Love You Live producer Hannah Blake at Entale Studios and to Love Supreme alumni Barney Dufton whose original premise the show is based upon.”
