BBC: Amy Winehouse Was Planning Jazz Super Group With ?uestlove Of The Roots


BBC: Singer Amy Winehouse had been planning to record material with a “supergroup” before she died, music producer Salaam Remi has revealed. Remi said the singer had planned a jazz album with Questlove, of The Roots, and saxophone player Soweto Kinch. “There were a bunch of other names bouncing around,” he said, at a press playback for her posthumous album. Remi has worked on all three Winehouse albums, including Lioness: Hidden Treasures, which is out next month. The producer said he knew of Winehouse’s “super group” plans because “she had written down everything she wanted to do”. Questlove features several times on the new album, including on the tracks “Half Time” and “Best Friend.” The 12-track album features previously unreleased material and alternative versions of existing songs.
