Jools Holland Interview for Yamaha

A quick interview before a date on his recent tour (Malvern Theatres) to do with specifically into how he got into playing, and any advice for people wanting to start or get back into playing the piano.

Rex. Neil Cowley Trio. Picking photographs.

I have a garage full of old transparency film in files. Most are labelled with the artist, location and date taken. These are the out-takes. I keep them to remind myself that I was prolific at one time. I also keep them because I know the 20-year-old that cut out the good ones to give to the editors of the magazines was a pup. He didn’t tend to hand in the experimental ‘accidents’ that occurred every 70 shots (one roll of 120 and one of 135). Today I shot a fantastic musician and gentle soul Rex Horan. He plays with Evan and Neil. They make wonderful music, and their rehearsal space is full of laughter. Here are 3 examples of shots that will not make the grade for the article… but are the ones I decided to illustrate a point that capturing moments isn’t necessarily about a pretty shot. I recently met an old college and friend Nigel, who now shoots beautiful, often funny glances at landscape around us all. An inspiration to pick up a camera for the joy in achieving the shot in mind.
