Amy Winehouse with Jools Holland - Monkey Man



Jools, Amy, and a glimpse of Rico on slide trombone... what could be better?

Vernal Equinox today. Spring has eventually sprung.

  1. Great clip - I remember seeing this - must say though she's a terrible mover - doesn't quite know what to do with her legs. St. Vitas dance maybe!

  2. Not her best tune, to my mind. I saw Rico a couple of times, and I have to also say that I never liked all that brass either - sorry...

    1. Dear old Rico, he's almost past it now, but still a legend. His playing days really should be over; he can hardly manage anything any more.

      The song is an old Ska classic, written by Toots (and the Maytals) Hibbert, who's girlfriend had just left him for a big fat guy, that he named 'Monkey Man'.

  3. Great singer. She looked overjoyed to be there.

    Listened to a few tracks by a young guy named Maverick Sabre the other day who sounded just like her. You'd like him.

    1. I've just had a quick peek. The sound and the face don't seem to match... are you sure he wasn't dubbed? Great voice!

  6. That was nice, Cro. But she seemed so sad, even then, even singing such an upbeat song. Man, what a waste of a talented life.

  7. I prefer her over Lady Gaga. Amy was tuned in with those old Jazz singers and really knew her stuff. Sad that she's gone.
