Efterklang at the Barbican

Jaga Jazzist @ The BarbicanFantastic concert tonight from Efterklang with Jaga Jazzist providing excellent, if sometimes over noodly support. Real thought put into the lighting and stage design as well, which was nice.

All the performers seemed to be loving being there, and the standing ovation at the end proved the audience were as well. ‘Caravan’ was the unsurprising highlight, but the slower ones worked especially nicely. Only slight problem was the overpowering of the orchestra by the band (couldn’t hear a whole lot of the percussion and brass for bits), but it’s a small niggle.
