This week we have had the pleasure of working with jazz legend Gregory Porter on his very own Christmas TV special at the Exchange Hotel in Cardiff Bay.
Mr Porter was joined by special guests Courtney Pine, Corinne Bailey Rae, Clare Teal, and Jacob Collier in performing special jazz arrangements of Christmas classics accompanied by the Gregory Porter band, and conductor Steve Sidwell’s fantastic orchestra.
We provided EAW MicroWedge 10’s and Logic Systems LM 8’s as monitors, radio microphones and In Ear Monitors, band microphones and a large amount of DPA 4099’s f or the orchestra. It was the first time for us to experiment with our Coda Coray tops coupled with the new Coda Tiray subs. This system proved to be perfect for TV sound reinforcement, and compact enough to keep the camera men happy!
Merry Christmas Baby will be broadcast on Christmas Day at 9pm on BBC 2.
