Episode 7

Joining Jools for the seventh show of this series are New Yorkers The Strokes, who make a long-awaited return to the show to play tracks from their latest album Angles.

Also in the studio are Staff Benda Bilili, based around a core of disabled musicians who used to rehearse in a zoo, and who have recently been the subject of a film - Benda Bilili! - which appeared at Cannes to critical acclaim.

There's music from The Burns Unit, an eight-piece Scottish-Canadian collective whose sound has been described as 'indie pop meets carnival rock', and whose members include award-winning folk singer Karine Polwart, alt-folk royalty King Creosote and indie queen Emma Pollock.

Seasick Steve performs songs from his latest album You Can't Teach an Old Dog New Tricks, and forms a hobo power trio alongside drummer Dan Magnusson and bassist John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin and Them Crooked Vultures fame.

Plus Charlie Haden Quartet West, in which the legendary double bassist, veteran collaborator with Ornette Coleman, Pat Metheny and many more, teams up with wife Ruth Cameron to perform music from his Sophisticated Ladies album, which explores the Great American Songbook.
