Two Jamaican legends on tour with Jools Holland

Continuing my labour of love which combines Freehand Silhouette cuts and the Jools Holland Rhythm & Blues Orchestra.
Two Jamaican giants this time.  The undisputed Queen of Boogie, Ruby Turner

... and the band's trombonist, Rico Rodriguez

Ruby's voice is superb.  She really is a top rhythm & blues, pop & soul Diva.
Kingston born Rico has been a session musician for many years. Want to see them both in action?
You can check the tour dates here
Hoping to catch them myself in Glasgow on 23rd or 24th November this year.

Some notes on the cuts themselves.  I trawled through some internet pics of Ruby & Rico.  Found a couple that I liked but they were three-quarter views.  I had to use a little imagination and artistic licence to give them that complete side- on classic profile.  Hope you like them.

Enjoy yourselves - it's later than you think!
