‘A singing sensation.... her voice is amazing’ - Bebop Spoken Here
Velvet-voiced Jo Harrop and pianist/arranger Alex Webb present an evening of British songwriting at its best. From the jazz-era masters Ray Noble and Eric Maschwitz to music theatre writers like Antony Newley, Leslie Bricusse and Lionel Bart, from the pop giants Lennon & McCartney to Elvis Costello and Amy Winehouse, Harrop and Webb mine a rich seam of material and present it in a cool, contemporary jazz format.
Expect classics like Lullaby of Birdland, The Very Thought Of You, As Long As He Needs Me, Roxanne, Almost Blue and Norwegian Wood as well as forgotten gems by John Dankworth and Victor Feldman – along with some carefully-chosen originals and a couple of surprises, presented by a top-flight jazz group featuring Nottigham's own sax giant, Tony Kofi
