Amy Winehouse & Paul Weller Perform JAZZ CLASSIC With Jools Holland, 2006.

The Jools Holland Show has hosted an incredible array of A-list performances, spanning the genres from Alice In Chains to Robbie Williams and Lana Del Rey. But among the most unexpected performances in the show’s history was jazz goddess, Amy Winehouse’s live duet with Modfather, Paul Weller, performing Etta Jones’ “Don’t Go To Strangers” live on Jools’ 2006 Annual Hootenanny.

The soft-serve grit of Paul’s first verse painted a dusky soundscape for Amy’s vocals to crown. Her majestic second verse flows, river-like and radiant, with personality quirks and a panther-like energy. Paul (aged 48 during this performance) brings an old-school touch to this timeless song, while Amy (23) brightens its hue with her Grammy Award-winning voice, amassing 5.3M YouTube views on this performance alone.

Jools Holland’s 2006 Annual Hootenanny also saw Amy Winehouse and Paul Weller perform a cover of “I Heard It Through The Grapevine” with a full brass band and authenticity like no other. These videos really epitomize the undeniable, natural talent lost way too soon with Amy’s untimely death at 27.

Born in Southgate, North London, Amy Winehouse’s second album, “Back To Black,” made her a cultural icon the same year as her Jools Holland appearance. Despite her time in the spotlight being tainted, Britney Spears-style, by tabloid vultures circling and shredding apart her personal life, addictions, and relationships, Amy’s posthumous celebrity status has raised her to an iconic level unlike any other of her generation.

Her basis in jazz instantly set Amy apart from other chart-topping vocalists of the mid-2000s. Her image, a collection of instant trademarks from her tattoos to her legendary beehive hairdo, was equally distinctive. But even with 1.1B views on her career-defining single, “Back To Black,” not one of Amy’s solo tracks climbed into the Top 5 on the UK singles charts. The only exception was “Valerie” — a #2 single by Mark Ronson, featuring Amy Winehouse on vocals.

Paul Weller, meanwhile, rose to fame as the frontman of The Jam, and to notoriety as the man who split up The Jam at the height of their career to pursue a new band, The Style Council, and later, a genre-bending solo career now stretching across sixteen studio albums. All this comes alongside decades’ worth of studio collaborations, including tracks released with Ocean Colour Scene, Amy MacDonald, The Charlatans, and Ronnie Wood of The Rolling Stones. But throughout his flurry of releases from 1977 to his upcoming 2024 album, “66,” Paul’s greatest hits come from his early days in the Surrey-based mod/punk trio The Jam, including “Going Underground,” “Down In The Tube Station At Midnight,” and “Town Called Malice.”
