Since learning to play fluently at the tender age of eight, Jools has become one of the UK’s most proficient jazz and blues pianists. Having toured extensively with his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra, his charismatic personality, impeccable good taste and accessible music have made him one of our most respected and enduring musicians. Jools was awarded an OBE in 2003 for his services to the British music industry.
Jools and the orchestra last year performed at the BBC Proms at the Royal Albert Hall when they took part in The Sound of Soul: Stax Records. Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Stax/Volt Revue’s first tour of the UK, Booker T. Jones and Sam Moore joined Stax artists William Bell, Steve Cropper, Eddie Floyd, Sir Tom Jones, Beverley Knight, James Morrison and Ruby Turner in a magical concert underpinned by Jools and his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra.
