Recently, Jools Holland and his band released an album of collaborations with other artists. Small World Big Band Volume Two: More Friends includes a truly spectacular rendition of the Pop classic, "If You Wear That Velvet Dress." Appropriately, Bono features as the lead vocalist on this track, and I HIGHLY recommend that you either purchase the CD or download the track (which has just become available at u2guatemala.com (under "Downloads"). Bono's voice is fantastic, and, needless to say, the Jools' band is simply amazing. My only complaint would be that the backing vocals are a bit... sterile, perhaps? Still, "If You Wear That Velvet Dress," always a standout in my mind, is wonderfully refined in this Big Band treatment.
