    Video/Movie Clip recorded at a Concert in Cardiff, December 2012.

    Over the years I have had the wonderful priviledge of seeing Jools Holland and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra close up many times ... but there was something really special about this night in my Home Town of Cardiff.

    The Band showcase many different types of music, i.e. Jazz, R&B, Rock & Roll, but my favourite is always the Boogie Woogie ... and this Video features 3 great songs/tunes :

    1 : "Bumble Boogie" - with some truly awesome piano playing from Jools Holland.
    2 : "T-Bag Skuffle" - great 'Big Band' version that got the whole audience on their feet.
    3 : "Whole Lot of Energy" featuring the amazing vocals of Ruby Turner.

    s Jools himself often says, these days a 20 Piece Big Band {Piano, Organ, Drums, Guitar, Bass, 3 Singers, 3 Trumpets, 4 Trombones, 5 Saxophones} is abit of a rarity ... but the music/sound it produces is something that has to be heard live to be appreciated!

    And as I said in my Movie Title - I think that the Jools Holland Rhythm & Blues Orchestra is probably the best "Big Band" there is! Show less
