The Golden Age Of Song   Jools Holland's first major collaborations album for five years, The Golden Age Of Song was released by Rhino UK in December 2012. The album contains twelve newly recorded studio songs featuring Jessie J, Tom Jones, Rumer, James Morrison, Paloma Faith, Paul Weller, Joss Stone, Mick Hucknall, Gregory Porter, and Ruby Turner.

There are also five unforgettable live performances – by Amy Winehouse and Paul Weller, Lily Rose Cooper (née Allen), Paolo Nutini, Florence Welch, and Cee Lo Green – from the popular BBC2 Hootenanny New Year's Eve show.

The Golden Age Of Song combines an array of wonderful performers with Jools' incomparable musicianship, and the instrumental support of his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra. "My orchestra and I have been very fortunate in working with an array of artists of different ages," says Jools. "We've worked with people who are in their 90s, sometimes people who were born in the 19th century, but also very young talents who were born in the late part of the 20th century.

"The great thing about music is that it doesn't matter if it's five minutes old or 500 years old. If you can breathe life into it, you can make it brand new every time you do it. That's what we've hopefully done with some of these songs, and we've accomplished it by both with inviting some old friends and welcoming some very young ones."
