The Best of

George Bruno ‘Zoot’ Money is one of the great characters of the British R&B scene. While Money remains an active bandleader and performer, for many fans, the heyday of his career was when he led the original Big Roll Band.

Their blend of raunchy R&B and funky soul was perfect for the club-goers of the Swinging Sixties. With Zoot singing and playing Hammond organ, he added zest to a powerful band that included riffing sax players, a driving drummer, singer Paul Williams and (soon-to-be-famous) guitarist Andy Summers of The Police.

This marvellous ‘Best Of’ collection comprises 19 entertaining tracks, culled from singles and albums, including ‘live’ material featuring Zoot’s popular ‘James Brown Medley’. Watch out for hit single ‘Big Time Operator’ and a Jimmy Smith style version of ‘The Cat’. Oh, and take your shoes off for a stompin’ ‘Barefootin’. Soul food? Soul fun!
