Since giving up his musician gig for the life of a television host, Jools Holland has become something of a Brit Paul Schaeffer, occasionally calling in favours from his celebrity pals to cut a schmaltzy record. His Big Band Rhythm And Blues project offers little rhythm and even less blues. Instead, it's just an opportunity for guests like Sting, Joe Strummer, Van Morrison, Eric Clapton, Marc Almond and Paul Weller to try a number with a full orchestra. The only real point of interest here is the inclusion of Horse To Water, the last song recorded by George Harrison. Even lifelong Beatles fans will admit it's not the quiet one's crowning achievement, but, hey, it's better than anything written by Mick Hucknall or Jamiroquai, who seem to have been invited for comic relief.
