• 2014: "The Sunflower Jam" is a now a regular sold out event. The fourth one at the Royal Albert Hall. A night of great music but also an explosion of joy and will to live. Jon Lord sadly passed away in 2012. Just a few weeks before the release of the just finished remake of what is universally known as the first ever meeting of classical music and rock. The "Concerto For Group and Orchestra". The same composition that Purple played live in 1969 at the Royal Albert Hall. Considering the amount of respect, friendship and love expressed on any occasion by anybody who had worked, played or simply met Jon Lord, it is not a surprise that the 2014 Jam would be dedicated totally to his music. The night turned out to be an historical moment in rock music: A full orchestra, a director - Paul Mann - crazy enough to give wonderful arrangements to a repertoire going back and forth through fifty years of music, many old friends for an unforgettable night. The Albert Hall sold out to the last seat... • Jon’s big musical loves were in the room, once again: same venue, many years later, many of the same people involved, a million times more the amount of emotions. For four hours Jon’s music was shining. Commotion, jokes, laughs and a lot of music came together by magic. The result is the show you can now hear and watch. All the wonderful musicians who played at the "Celebrating Jon Lord" Sunflower Jam have left a precious mark but how not to mention the 45 minutes finale by Deep Purple, the Purple Mk III songs played by Paice with the old friend Glenn Hughes, together with Iron Maiden?s Bruce Dickinson, Rick Wakeman’s of Yes fame, Steve Balsamo (who sang in the late Jon Lord band and in his last studio album "Concerto"), members of The Temperance Movement, ex members of Whitesnake, Marsden and Moody, the "modfather" Paul Weller... • Ian Paice remembers the “Celebrating Jon Lord” night with vivid memory considering the time all the artists had to rehearse the music for the concert, (in Deep Purple’s case two hours the day before the show!) the resulting performance were nothing less than miraculous. A testament to the quality of the players and love for Jon and his works. “It was like no concert I have ever played. To a person everyone in the Hall was there for a common purpose to honour a wonderful man and a great musician. The Royal Albert Hall is fairly large venue and can be intimidating, but that evening it was more like a gathering of friends at their local,(if slightly oversized) pub than a regular show. I believe all the artists, the people in the audience and even the crew helping to make the show work, felt the difference that night.” Everybody attending the show left the venue with an expression that clearly said "one day I will be able to say I was there"... Now everybody will be able to see why.
