Jon’s final Sunflower Jam out on DVD

Jon Lord + Rick Wakeman
Classic Rock SunflowerThe Sunflower Jam
have announced the release of their long awaited DVD of highlights from their 2011 and 2012 jams at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Including every track from Jon Lord’s final filmed live performance – at the 2011 Sunflower Jam – the DVD promises to be a veritable feast of goodies.

Possibly the most mouth watering track is Jon’s and Rick Wakeman‘s world premiered composition It’s Not As Big As It Was – along with Jon’s powerful work on Joe Bonamassa‘s The Ballad of John Henry – and Bourrée from the Sarabande album.

The double DVD includes two versions of Pictured Within; one with Jon and Steve Balsamo from the 2011 jam, which was moving enough; the second being Balsamo’s heartbreaking tribute to Jon filmed in 2012 a mere two months after Jon passed away.

Sunflower Jam DVDAlso featured is Ian Paice jamming with Led Zeppelin‘s John Paul Jones, Queen‘s Brian May and Iron Maiden‘s Bruce Dickinson on Black Night and Since You Been Gone – and a whole cast of other stars.

Produced by The Sunflower Jam charity, all monies raised will go directly to supporting the research and application of holistic and non-toxic treatments for children and young adults suffering from cancer.

Watch the trailer – and see the full track list below.

  1. Thank you for including Jon Lords final video performances, it is a truly wonderful jam, pictured within was so emotional, more now after Jons parting, tears of joy were shed, love to his family and all who appreciate what a great talent he was. Thanks to Vicki and Jackie two wonderful people who have kept this exceptional Jam alive…xxx

    I watched the SFJ 2011/2012 DVD and I had tears in my eyes when I saw Jon playing his B3 together with Joe Bonamassa and then with Rick Wakeman.

    This DVD is from now on my Top-DVD.
    God bless you!
