An interesting approach to recording live sessions has been taking place in London – the Black Cab Sessions – simple idea use the back of a famous London cab to record a session which is then captured on camera and in audio. The sessions have been largely adopted with artists with a more indie spirit such as Stephen Fretwell, The Kooks and so on. A lot of these artists are the sort I would expect to see show up on Later with Jools Holland.
The company behind the idea (Just So) have been gaining a lot of attention from the UK media (BBC and Channel 4 airing recordings). Checkout their site for more Black Cab Sessions.
