Interview with Marcus Anderson


Marcus Anderson is in town again.  Over the past eighteen months we've seen him here with Prince, collaborating with Lianne La Havas on a live cover version of Lost & Found at some legendary shows at Kokos in Camden and performing at the iconic Ronnie Scotts in Soho on a version of Purple Rain with a sax solo in place of that famous guitar solo!


More recently he was here with Liv Warfield on her Not Giving Up Tour, which by all accounts really blew people away that were lucky enough to be there.


This time Marcus is back in Soho at one of the Capital's best jazz clubs which is celebrating its 50th year in 2015, The Pizza Express Jazz Club in Soho.  He will be playing four shows this weekend, filling the early and late slots for both Friday and Saturday evening.

Marcus took some time out to talk to us about Penny Loafers, musical vibrations, Prince's Vault, singers singing like sax players and sax players playing like singers...

You Can Call it The Unexpected or U Can Call it Wow!

Photo by Sara Savoy So - a bit like Inception or Pulp Fiction or one of those films that goes out of sequence - I'm going to have to skip ahead a little bit in the story of my visit to Minneapolis, because something amazing just happened.... I just had the most incredible afternoon and evening for lots of reasons..  I was planning an easy day of relaxing and writing when I got an invite from Sara to join her on a trip to her sister's place and we would take in the spot where Take Me With You was filmed and try and find "the lake" where Prince convinced Apollonia to purify herself in the waters of Lake Minnetonka. I drove up to Sara's place about midday where I was greeted by her enthusiastic dogs and I had a good old look through Sara's amazing vinyl collection while she got ready.  We were a little on edge that something might happen that night but nothing had been announced so it was seeming less and less likely.
