About Jools Holland and His Rhythm and Blues Orchestra

Jools’ Impressive Solo Career

After several years as a member of Squeeze, Jools Holland eventually was more tempted to pursue a solo career. In 1978, he released his very first solo record, entitled “Boogie Woogie ‘78”. In the course of 3 years, during the 1981-1984 period, the artist released a full album, as well as various singles. One year later, he agreed to return to Squeeze. He continued to play the keyboard for the band until 1990 when he felt it was time to focus on his solo career again. Throughout his impressive career, Jools Holland collaborated with a lot of popular artists and bands, such as The Beatles, Eric Clapton, Sting, George Harrison, Bono, Tom Jones or David Gilmour.

From Solo Artist to Band Leader

Jools Holland established his first band in 1987. It was called the Jools Holland Big Band, and it included Gilson Lavis, his former colleague from Squeeze, as a drummer. Eventually, the Jools Holland Big Band was turned into the famous Jools Holland and His Rhythm and Blues Orchestra, which is still highly successful nowadays. Apart from Jools himself and Gilson Lavis, the 20-piece band’s line-up is made of the following members: Louise Marshall, Phil Veacock, Ruby Turner, Winston Rollins, Mark Flanagan, Dave Swift, Christopher Holland, Lisa Grahame, Michael Rose, Derek Nash, Chris Storr, Nick Lunt, Roger Goslyn, Fayyaz Virji, Jason McDermid, Jon Scott, and Rosie Mae.
