Product description

Product description

JOOLS HOLLAND The Informer (2008 UK 27-track 2-CD album set - Following the successful series of Jools Holland and Friends albums this infectious musical force decided it was time to bring focus back to the strength of the 20 piece Rhythm & Blues Orchestra. A true showcase in musicianship with its classic horn and rhythm sections plus Jools unique piano playing the 17-track album reflects the party atmosphere of their ever popular live shows. Opening with the soulful title trackfeaturing the smooth tones of vocalist Ruby Turner Jools Holland & co quickly establish the beginnings of an eclectic big band party; along with the gentle string led anthemic I Went By showcasing a timeless soul vocal provided by Louise Marshall and the traditional I Know Where I Am Going with Rico Rodriguez [famed Jamaican ska and reggae trombonist and member of the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra]. Complete with a Bonus CD of exclusive live recordings from Wells & Rochester Cathedrals.)

Amazon.co.uk

Britain’s favourite jazz man Jools Holland, along with his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, have been bringing their consistent brand of big band boogie to the masses for a remarkable two decades. Featuring 17 tracks (three quarters of which have been penned by Jools), The Informer is the band’s latest collection of feelgood British soul, rollicking boogie-woogie and sassy swing. Featuring British soul singers Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall as well as famed ska/reggae trombonist Rico Rodriguez, The Informer gets off to a soaring start with opener “The Informer,” which showcases Turner’s fabulous Motown-style vocals. The rousing “St Louis Blues” and “Honey Hush” display the troupe’s blues and boogie-woogie chops respectively, while songs such as “I Went By” (featuring the wonderful up and coming singer Louise Marshall) show the band can tackle ballads with equally splendid results. The Informer also comes with a fantastic live CD, which is more gospel-themed and features potent performances from Turner as well as Beverley Knight. Two decades on, Jools & Co remain very much at the peak of their musical powers. --Danny McKenna
