Bumper Jools News: An outdoor concert, 'Later...' expands, and an appearance on Marc Almond's new album

There's a whole lotta Jools goin' on!

A whole mailbag* of Jools news has been emptied onto my desk here at Squeezereader Towers!

*Ok, it's just the three stories... but that doesn't sound showbiz enough!

Firstly, the Lowestoft Journal reports that:

"RHYTHM and blues legend, Jools Holland is the latest musician to be added to a spectacular line up of outdoor concerts being held across the region this summer.

The musician will play a one-off gig with his Rhythm and Blues Orchestra and special guest Lulu at the Somerleyton Estate, near Lowestoft, on Saturday, August 11."

Read the whole article here (you might need to log in, but it's free!)

Then, as if that's not enough!...

There's going to be six extra editions of the BBC's 'Later... With Jools Holland'!

You can read all about it under the unintentionally funny headline of:

" TOTP2 cut back as Jools expands"

At first, I thought that our favourite boogie-woogie player had put on a bit of weight, but I am pleased to report that he's doing fine! ;0)

And finally, Jools pops up on Marc Almond's new album:

"Stardom Road is the first release for Almond since his motorcycle crash in October 2004 in which he sustained serious injuries. The record, produced by Marius De Vries and Tris Penna, features guest appearances by Jools Holland and Antony Hegarty of Antony And The Johnsons. Almond also duets with St. Etienne's Sarah Cracknell on the Dusty Springfield number, "I Close My Eyes And Count To Ten."
