Anjani Thomas Stars On Jools Holland Show
Although Anjani sang “Innermost Door” on the Jools Holland Show as part of the promotion of the Blue Alert album two years ago, this video only recently surfaced online.1
Anjani On Jools Holland, The White Stripes, And Anjani
When asked about about this performance, Anjani responded,
I was so honored to do on this show. Jools’ love for music and musicians is so real and supportive, and he’s a such a versatile artist that he played keyboards for The White Stripes in the same show!
This was filmed in a cavernous studio that was refrigerator cold. I could actually see my breath in the dressing room and had to wrap myself up in a towel and jump up and down to stay warm.
I was really happy that Jools’ played piano for me so I could focus on the vocal and not worry about my shivering hands.
When Meg and Jack came on the decibel level went off the charts. I have never heard a band make so much music out of guitar, bass and drums…
There was so much energy in the room it seemed to encourage the other bands on the show to play even louder to make an impression.
Talk about feeling old — I had my fingers in my ears for most of the filming! But it was a thrill and definitely the highlight of that tour.
Best Of Anjani
In light of the production values of the recording and, frigid environs notwithstanding, the quality of Anjani’s own performance, this may be the best video (so far, at least) of her work.
