Music programme with live sessions. Guy Garvey, Dave Gahan, Soulsavers, Jamie Woon, Willy Mason, Judy Collins, Caravan Palace and Bela Fleck and Abigail Washburn join Jools.
Joining Jools on the show this week is Elbow frontman Guy Garvey, who is stepping out on his own with songs from his upcoming debut solo album Courting the Squall. Another musician taking time away from their usual band is Depeche Mode's Dave Gahan who joins up again with Soulsavers for their second album together entitled Angels & Ghosts, which they describe as an aural mix of dark, brooding sounds with elements inspired by gospel and blues. From London, singer-songwriter and producer Jamie Woon makes his Later debut with a couple of tracks from his upcoming trip-soul album Making Time, including his collaboration with New York singer-songwriter Willy Mason. Also on the show will be Judy Collins, the endlessly prolific singer, songwriter, author and activist who enjoyed success in the 60s and 70s with her versions of the likes of Sondheim's Send in the Clowns and the standard Amazing Grace. She will be chatting and performing with Jools at the piano. Joining them in the studio will be the French electro-swing outfit Caravan Palace, whose influences range from Django Reinhardt to Lionel Hampton to Daft Punk. Completing the line-up are Béla Fleck and Abigail Washburn, who after many years of prominence as banjo players and composers in their own eclectic musical avenues, have teamed up and will play a couple of tunes from their collaborative album.
