Amy Winehouse, 1983 – 2011
That pub was, of course, the celebrated Rayners Hotel – and the band she was singing with was NYJO. How Amy came to be singing with the band on 16th July 2000, and an appreciation of how a recording of that concert could help benefit the orchestra’s charity funds, is covered at length on page 13 of The Times (Saturday 30th July).
Bill Ashton also remembers Amy’s brief association with NYJO for LondonJazz:
