‘This girl was born to sing jazz!’Blues & Soul

Jo Harrop pays tribute to the sultriest songstress of them all, Peggy Lee – accompanied by a superb band led by pianist/MD Alex Webb and featuring alto sax giant Tony Kofi, with the creamy-voiced Harrop delivering moving renditions of Peggy Lee ballads as well as swinging out on other great songs from the Lee canon.

Peggy Lee (May 26, 1920 – January 21, 2002) was one of the great figures of jazz and American popular song and had a career spanning six decades. Songs featured in the show include Lee’s Fever and Why Don’t You Do Right and The Folks Who Live on the Hill. Peggy Lee, unlike most other singers of her generation also distinguished herself as a songwriter, penning It’s A Good Day, I Love Being Here With You and He’s a Tramp (the last featuring in the Disney film The Lady And The Tramp). Lee also delivered a moving acting performance in the film Pete Kelly’s Blues.

Jo Harrop recently released the superb CD ‘Songs For The Late Hours’ which Bebop Spoken Here Blog described as the ‘album of the year’; in she 2016 guested on the album ‘Call Me Lucky’ by Alex Webb & The Copasetics, delivering what jazzman.com called ‘a smoothly sumptuous vocal’ on the Webb original ‘End of The Affair’. The album received four-star reviews in the Guardian and Evening Standard.

‘A singing sensation…. Her voice is amazing – think Islay whisky, dark porter or tannin-rich red wine –the lissome lady is a class act’Bebop Spoken Here Blog
