Not Exactly House Music

The best-loved stories of P.G. Wodehouse feature that imperturbable valet Jeeves and his young aristocratic employer, Bertie Wooster, an affable fellow, but unmusical. In the English TV series of the early ‘90s starring Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, that shortcoming was rectified. Laurie, a supremely musical (then-young) fellow, was wont to express Bertie’s joie de vivre at the piano with ditties of the 1920s. Later, as the eccentric title character in TV’s House, Laurie indulged a multi-instrumental passion for American blues, jazz and roots music. That tube stint now behind him, he’s once again seated himself at the keyboard, leading a combo of veteran American musos in a spectrum of classic American tunes from Jelly Roll Morton to Doctor John.

I accept that Wodehouse's B&W books are well-loved, but avering that they are 'best-loved' makes an unnecessary swipe at the Blandings Castle stories. FWIW.
