Later... with Jools Holland, Series 49 Live
Joining Jools in his music box for the last show in the series are London's electronic music production duo Chase and Status, aka Saul Milton and Will Kennard, who are about to tour the UK and continue to straddle the UK's dance, urban and grime scenes. They bring some of their recent collaborators, including singer Tom Grennan and Manchester grime MC Bugzy Malone.
Oxford's Glass Animals continue that city's fine tradition of indie rock morphing into funkier territory and make their debut on the show performing songs from their second and breakthrough album How to Be a Human Being.
First appearing on the BBC in 1967, the legendary Puerto Rican guitarist and singer Jose Feliciano makes his debut on the show almost 50 years later. Blind since he was born, Feliciano was raised in the Bronx and became an international star in 1968 with his interpretation of The Doors's Light My Fire. He continues to record in Spanish and English and performs a couple of his classics and a new song from his forthcoming album.
Joseph, aka sisters Natalie, Allison and Meegan Closner, possess stunning sibling harmonies, hail from Oregon, and make their UK television debut with White Flag from their second album I Am Alone, No You're Not.
Another American debutante is Californian Nick Waterhouse, whose intimate feel for the retro dance styles of 50s R&B, rock 'n' roll and even boogaloo shines through on his third album Never Twice.
Brooklyn 'noise pop' duo Sleigh Bells shake the studio with songs from their fourth album Jessica Rabbit. Alexis Krauss and Derek Edward Miller know how to stalk a stage, blending blockrocking beats, distorted guitars and Krauss's troubled but commanding presence with a sound that suggests a Garbage for today!
And more acts to be confirmed.

Later... with Jools Holland
Jools looks back at a selection of some of 2016's performances on the show, including Iggy Pop roaming the studio whilst performing one of his classic tunes, TV debuts by Christine and the Queens, Rag'n'Bone Man and Spring King and a previously unbroadcast classic from Bee Gee Barry Gibb, plus lots more.
Het was gewoon niet een goed seizoen.quote:Op zaterdag 12 november 2016 03:13 schreef svann het volgende:
Nou, dat was niet echt mijn 'best of', maar er zaten wat aardige dingen bij die ik nog niet had gezien.
Opa Gibb was nog goed bij stem, dat kon je niet zeggen van de Temptations-opa en dat verwacht je niet eens van opa Iggy.
Wel zeventien optredens wist Jools in die 65 minuten compilatie te persen.

Jools Holland returns for the 50th series of the BBC's flagship music show. Joining him on the first show from Kent are Leicester's own rock and roll troupe of merry men, Kasabian, who debut songs from their upcoming LP For Crying Out Loud. It is their sixth album and no doubt contains more rousing stompers that will be played in their many festival headline spots to come this summer.
Making their UK TV debut is West Coast-based Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals. Anderson is a singer, songwriter, producer and
drummer and one-time protege of Dr Dre - he runs through a couple of tracks from his Malibu LP, a 'breezy blend of R&B, funk, soul and pop'.
UK electro-duo Alison and Will, aka Goldfrapp, are back with songs from their seventh album Silver Eye, which sees them return to the deep and dark synth-pop sound of some of their earlier work. More debuts on the show come courtesy of Thundercat, the Los Angeles bass player and Kendrick Lamar collaborator, whose jazz-infused hip-hop/soul vibe has been winning friends and reviews through thrilling his live shows and third album Drunk. From Austin, Texas come rock band Spoon, who since forming in 1993 have been consistently releasing albums to critical success. They finally make their TV debut here with a song or two from their recently released ninth album Hot Thoughts.
Completing the line-up is Phoenix-born singer songwriter Courtney Marie Andrews, who topped the UK's official Americana chart back in January with her third album Honest Life, a collection of songs of everyday, hard-working lives tinged with longing, regret and belief.
Other artists coming up in the series include Ed Sheeran, Valerie June, Future Islands, Royal Blood, Jamiroquai, Robert Cray, The xx, Lorde, Stormzy, Blondie and more.
