After preparing for the recitals in December, January has been mainly orchestral work, except for two weekends working towards the Urban Classic program with the BBCSO in March. Myself and 5 other BBCSO musicians were educated by Jules Buckley in the art of grime music. I have to admit it’s not a genre I was particularly familiar with. Deftly guided by Rob on Bass and Alex on drums we put together a few ‘tracks’ by Miss Dynamite, Devlin, Skepta and Fazer then tried the now ‘orchestrated’ versions with the solosits. Devlin was really quite awe inspiring when he performed as he was so focused. Miss Dynamite was wonderful and delightfully modest, Skepta and Fazer seemed to really enjoy having live musicians to play with. It was great fun, I learnt a lot and was a massive contrast to not only the solo work I’ve recently done, but the Suk recording sessions I’d had earlier in the week.
