Lift the Lid Review

by Stephen Thomas Erlewine

Lift the Lid is a predicable but enjoyable live affair from Jools Holland and his R&B Orchestra, finding the boogie-woogie pianist running through a number of ... well, R&B, jump blues and boogie woogie numbers. There isn't much grit to the music, but it is well-played and there are some swinging, fun moments, mainly provided by trombonist Rico Rodriguez and guest artist Paul Weller, who sings and plays on "I'm Gone."
