2018 release. Musical maestro Jools Holland has teamed up with international artist Marc Almond to release A Lovely Life To Live. This album has been more than ten years in the making, with Jools and Marc having toured together periodically since 2006. A Lovely Live To Live showcases the brilliant live sound and musicianship between Jools, Marc and the well-renowned Rhythm & Blues Orchestra when they perform together on stage as one ensemble. The 14-track album is a fantastic collection of both brand new, original tracks written by Jools and Marc as well as their big band interpretations of a wide range of songs. Highlights include Marc and Soft Cell's iconic Tainted Love, Edith Piaf's Hymne ò L'amour, Irving Berlin's How Deep Is The Ocean as well as two Bobby "Blue" Bland songs - 'It's My Life Baby' and 'I'll Take Care Of You'.
