Members gave their commentary on their jazz choices as follows.
" "S'wonderful" briefly features Joe Harriott in a short solo spot, & burbling away in the background. An unusual short lived addition to the band.”
"No visual, for "Out of Nowhere" but just as sublime without! Wonderful just to listen to. The muted trumpet is played by Benny Carter.”
“YolanDa Brown - Joanna and I are fans of the Quiz show "Eggheads", and YolanDa Brown was on it as a contestant, so I decided to look her up. I thought this was an interesting track. It has Evelyn Glennie on percussion.”
" Similarly, we saw Ruby Turner at the Albert Hall Remembrance Service. We thought she had a good voice and found her recording “Jumping at the Jubilee”. As you can see she was on the Jools Holland Programme, she has also made an Album with him called 'Jools and Ruby'. "
“ 'Lazy Bones makes me think of myself at the moment!”
“I came across a review of an album by a lady called Lucia Cadotsch and I looked her up on YouTube. Here she covers a number which was made popular by Nina Simone.”
“Here a great Louis Armstrong performance is enhanced by the presence of the mesmerising Jewel Brown.”
Additionally Non-Jazz Tracks were played as follows.
Members gave their commentary on their non-jazz choices as follows.
“This is probably Clapton's definitive version of this number & probably one of his best bands. Clapton calls four key changes during his solo & they all slot in without any effort. Great playing - great sound.”
“I am not quite sure why but every time I ask "Alexa" to play my Rock and Roll playlist on Spotify it always starts with the Cream and Crossroads before continuing with a random playlist. I have not bothered investigating the reason by checking my settings as I love that track. I found a reunion version on YouTube:”
“At a previous email session, John chose Elkie Brookes and rated her as one of our best singers. I would like to respond with a track by Joss Stone. When Burt Bacharach came to London in 2012 he invited a number of British singers to perform with him, when he returned a few years later he invited just Joss back to sing. “Right to Be Wrong” is a song Joss wrote with some friends when she was 16. Towards the end of the song you see two brass players that Joss inherited from James Brown. He was a great fan of hers and famously invited her to sing with him when they were guests on the Jonathon Ross show. A few years ago Joss literally undertook a world tour singing in every country apart from Iran from which she was deported."
