I saw him playing at the equivalent of a village fete once!ReplyDelete
Doesn't surprise me. I think he'd play anywhere. Great guy!ReplyDelete
See how you guys cherish your older musicians? I think that's great. America is so fickle, it makes me crazy.ReplyDelete
I miss Jools Holland! I used to love that show when it was on BBC America.
I've been to see his band loads of times, Amy. Always fantastic. His picks really talented musicians; and keeps them.ReplyDelete
Fabulous photo of Rico.ReplyDelete
I think Jools Holland is an irritating sort of fellow, despite his taste in musicians. I also HATE jazz, so there we are.ReplyDelete
His Hootenanny presenting and interviewing techniques are not the best; he'd certainly be better sticking to his piano. I'm not terribly keen on jazz either, and would never go to a jazz club! It's all that silly mid-number clapping that get's my goat.ReplyDelete
