Rico Rodriguez Rings In 2009 With A Rousing Version of L-O-V-E on Later With Jools Holland

A quick post to pay respects to Rico Rodriguez who appeared on Later With Jools Holland on BBC2 in the UK on New Year's Eve to sing a rousing rendition of L-O-V-E with Jools & his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra. Rico is a member of Holland's Rhythm & Blues Orchestra and tours and performs with him when he can. If we only had something this classy here in the U.S. instead of god awful emo bands, girl bands and endless hip hop on every New Year's Eve countdown show.

So if you missed it, here is the song in all its glory. Great to see Rico can still belt out a tune at age 74. Here's to hoping he joins The Specials on their reunion tour.
