    Had a really great time, enjoyed every moment, as did the three people I was with. The whole show was flawless, so professional from start to finish. Jools Holland really seems to be enjoying himself, amazing piano, nice bit of corny repartee. Blown away by the drum solo . The version of 'Secret Love' keeps running through my head. Audience was very happy and friendly too.

    ...and we did enjoy! Wat een geweldig concert, het toont hoe plezant muziek wel kan zijn. Graag volgend jaar opnieuw.

    Fantastisch concert. Ik kom elke keer naar Jools Holland. Hij zou er ieder jaar moeten staan. Ik vond het super dat er dit jaar zoveel zitplaatsen waren. Heeft met mijn leeftijd te maken. 69 jaar. Ik vond het ook amazing dat er zoveel jonge mensen zijn die dit geweldig vinden. Een super ambiance. Opnieuw !....

    Ambiance gegarandeerd en dat wisten we al van zijn vorig optreden in de AB. Een pianovirtuoos, omringd door topmuzikanten en schitterende zangeressen. Beth Rowley kende ik al, en haar live horen was super. We kijken al uit naar de volgende keer.

Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think!

The very first jazz album was released 100 years ago: The Original Dixieland Jass Band with ‘Livery Stable Blues’. That’s why AB will be paying extra attention to jazz for a year. From contemporary classics to musical troublemakers who are inspired by jazz, to the latest incredibly headstrong jazz generation from local soil.

'That left hand that never stops'... and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra!

'Enjoy Yourself (it's later than you think.)' Jools fans know this trademark phrase well. So it is still the swinging motto of these always exciting evenings.

Because, if even BB King says so: 'I didn't think anybody could play like that. Jools has got that left hand that never stops.'

That Jools! Known from TV, already recognized from Squeeze, but totally in his element as bandleader. In full, it is thus: JOOLS HOLLAND and his RHYTHM & BLUES ORCHESTRA featuring GILSON LAVIS and guest vocalists RUBY TURNER & LOUISE MARSHALL!

We cheerfully keep cheering!
