Fans of the multi-talented musician Jools Holland will be delighted to hear that he has just released a fabulous new album. A Lovely Life to Live, by Jools and Marc Almond with the Rhythm and Blues Orchestra will be released on November 23rd, priced £9.99.
The new album comes following their recent tour together and is a compilation of 14 tracks uplifting tracks that are popular with audiences up and down the country. Including both classics and more modern tracks, songs from the album include Soft Cell's Tainted Love, Irving Berlin's How Deep Is The Ocean, Edith Piaf's Hymne À L'Amour, and Bobby 'Blue' Bland's It's My Life Baby and I'll Take Care Of You.
Talking about the album, Jools Holland said: "Over the last few years, Marc has toured with my orchestra giving amazing performances. I'm so delighted that we've now been given the opportunity to capture this on record. It brings out, I hope, what is the best of both of us".
Marc Almond said: "If this record were to be a movie, it'd be a black and white movie of the late 50s or 60s set in London and starring Dirk Bogarde (with maybe a brief visit to Paris where we'd meet Deneuve and Delon in a smoky bar)! Jools and I have a performing history that stretches back many years now and at last we can bring our joint love of Bogarde, London, Vintage Cars, afternoon tea and the blues to a record. With Jools and the Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, it's always a lovely life".
