7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Ian Wood, Author of 'Here's 2 Absent Fathers' on 31 July 2008
Format: Audio CD
The first full album recorded by Jools Holland and his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra opens with the brilliant instrumental Boogie-Woogie of Jools' `Hamsters Wheel' (`Jubals Discovery' being one of many protracted intros) before Fairground Attraction's Eddie Reader leads the band through Squeeze lyricist Chris Difford's brilliant `Waiting Game' (Which Jools originally performed on his 1982 `Jools Holland and his Millionaires' album).

Next up is Holland's song for his daughter `Able Mabel' which with Ska legend Rico Rodriquez highlighting the Ska beat which was underplayed on its previous outing, on the album `Live Performance'. Then we have what is possibly the greatest Holland composition `I, is All I ever Here' which contains the fantastic line `Never look down on anyone unless your helping to pick them up'. Brother Christopher takes over the vocal duties on the Difford lyric for `Instrumental Love' and sounds very much like Jools in a higher register.

Jools then gives us a potentially too light a version of Charles Mingus' `Atom Bomb'. Chris Difford then makes a surprise vocal appearance on his lyric for the fabulous `Scorpio Rising' before Jools brings it all home with the standards `Well Alright', `Count to Ten' and `Wang Dang Doodle'. The last two Difford/Holland compositions are the atmospheric `I Love a Train' and the country flavoured `Lonesome Joe' which had been in Jools' set for some time.

Possibly the most immediate of Jools recording up to this point with a full set using the Rhythm and Blues Orchestra to full effect giving us a consistently high standard.

This is another great album by the superb jools holland. Unlike most albums i've listend to sex, jazz, rock and roll offers something different within each track, giving an album anybody coud listen to over and over for hours. Theres so much mixture from slow piano melodies to upbeat boogie orchestrations. A must have in your CD collection!

I stumbled across The Best Of Jools Holland a few days ago so I decided to get this album because I enjoyed the above so much. I have to say I thought this was better than the "Best Of" I not really a big fan of this type of music but this is so easy to listen to. I have seen Jools Holland advertised on TV but I have never gave it a thought to watch I certainly will be now the guy is brillant.

First thing to say about this is you won't be disappointed. Everything you'd expect from Jools Holland and his Orchestra his here. Great boogie-woogie Piano playing, rip-roaring big band arrangements, lots of brass and thats just the second track 'Hamsters Wheel', which is a Holland original.

There are plenty of other great tracks, with only a few weaker ones. Particular favourites of mine are 'Well Alright', with its swinging Count Basie arrangement and 'Atom Bomb' a Charles Mingus number with some lovely Piano playing and fabulous arrangement. Unlike a previous reviewer I don't count 'Jubals Discovery' or 'Rab Elpmet' as weak tracks because both are less than 30 seconds in length. If you don't like them don't play them.

As with most of Jools albums the only real weakness are his vocals, which whilst not bad, really shouldn't be leading a band this good. To his credit, as the years have gone by I think he has realised this, hence the number of 'friends' albums and the increasing use of guest singers.

We can only hope that Jools continues with the Orchestra as there are very few people playing this sort of music with this sort of band.
