5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Sounds, 20 Aug. 2002
This review is from: Jools Holland And Friends - Small World Big Band (Audio CD)
Just browsing and listening to newly released compilation albums in a store and bought this album on the basis of hearing the first track 7th Son with Sting. I had never before heard of Jools Holland as I live in Aust, but was pleasantly surprised at how familiar some songs sounded to me although I had never heard them before. Needless to say it has become my absolute favourite album.
Paul Weller and Style Council were a great band so a bit of an influence for me to buy, had never heard of Suggs but "oranges and lemons" is such a fun song - reminds me of a mix of Ian Dury/Madness. Also "Valentine Moon" is such a simply beautiful tune. I could not pin one song as my favourite as they all are so good, although "All that you are" for me resonates the emotions I feel for my mother and tugs at my heart every time I hear it.

I strongly recommend anyone to buy this wonderful album - you will not be disappointed. It's diversity of sounds from big band, jazz, rock, blues and boogie woogie is sure to please all who listen. Excellent value for money.
