Southern soul singer "The Reverend" Al Green reached the respectable age of 64 on April 13 this year. Fortunately, one of the most beautiful soul voices of all time is still going strong and the singer is making his fifth appearance at the North Sea Jazz Festival this year. Since 1968, Green has been making musical history thanks to his numerous unforgettable hits like Let's Stay Together, Use Me and Love and Happiness. In 2003, he signed with the Blue Note label and his next three albums let us revisit his glory days. At first, he recorded with his trusted producer Willie Mitchell, but his most recent album, Lay It Down, uses contemporary talents, including Ahmir Thompson, James Poyser, John Legend, Corinne Bailey Rae and Anthony Hamilton. This year, Green will be performing at the North Sea Jazz Festival with an extended line-up including his daughters Kora, Alvi and Rubi as backup singers.
