Jools Holland And His Rhythm And Blues Orchestra - Sheffield City Hall

Last night we went to see Jools Holland at the City Hall. He was as amazing as ever.

We first went to see him 2 years ago and his superb performance was somewhat ruined by having Lulu as a special guest, but there was none of that tonight.

3 trumpets, 4 trombones and 5 saxophones is apparently the classic big bang (according to Jools) and they were accompanied by an amazing drummer, an organist, a guitarist, bass player and a couple of sexy backing singers. Finally there was Jools himself on piano/guitar/vocals and the superb Ruby Turner singing about 6 or 7 songs.

What an amazing sound they made. They were all just so god damn talented. If you have the slightest love of R & B, jazz, big band or just 'proper' music you should book for next year. I know we will be.
