Multimedia roots music throw-down
The Amy Winehouse bio Amy showed the rare singing/songwriting talent that basically never arrives together in the same person. In one of my favorite Amy clips, check out this British soul music refresher with Paul Weller and Jools Holland.
Weller, aka the Modfather, a British R&B and rock legend since his debut with The Jam in 1977, has the pipes. But his songwriting and singing chops are upstaged by Winehouse who won 3 Ivor Novello Awards to Weller’s 1 despite her tragic death at 27.
Hear It Through the Grapevine with Jools Holland’s band brings the funk.
