The Man In The Hot Seat

The James Taylor Quartet celebrates its latest album, Man in the Hot Seat with a special one-off concert featuring a full orchestra.

In recent years British jazz funk band, the James Taylor Quartet has taken inspiration from Lalo Schifrin, Quincy Jones, John Barry and more to produce a trio of breath-taking albums: Soundtrack from Electric Black (2018), People Get Ready (2020) and 2022’s Man in the Hot Seat. All of the albums feature a full orchestral line-up and are a cinematic stew of lush strings, powerful horns, funk rhythms and the trademark James Taylor Hammond organ sound.

Joining the James Taylor Quartet for this exclusive event will be an orchestra performing music from all three albums along with other James Taylor Quartet classics and a few surprises.
