Jo Harrop sings Peggy Lee and the great Torch Songs with special guest Tony Kofi (alto sax)

Jo Harrop pays tribute to Peggy Lee, one of the greatest exponents of Torch Song - those unforgettable laments for unrequited or lost loves. With Alex Webb (piano), Miles Danso (bass), Joel Prime (drums) and special guest Tony Kofi (alto sax), the creamy-voiced Harrop delivers moving renditions of Peggy Lee classics as well as swinging out on other great songs from the canon.

Peggy Lee (May 26, 1920 – January 21, 2002) was one of the great figures of jazz American popular song and had a career spanning six decades. Songs featured in the show include Peggy Lee’s Fever and Why Don’t You Do Right – as well as other Torch classics such as Nina Simone’s Sugar in My Bowl, Billie Holiday’s I’m A Fool To Want You, Sarah Vaughan’s It Never Entered My Mind – as well as songs associated with Julie London, Jeri Southern and even Amy Winehouse.

Jo Harrop recently 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.

 

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

“Jo Harrop has a beautiful & excellent tone with great stage presence” - Marlbank.net

“‘Webb is a writer not content with peddling jazz covers but a composer hell bent on writing some new jazz standards” - Blues & Soul Magazine

“A singing sensation.... Her voice is amazing – think Islay whisky, dark porter or tannin-rich red wine –deep, the lissom lady is a class act. Vocalist Jo Harrop held the audience in the palm of her hand from the first note, a sign that we were listening to something special.” - Bebop Spoken Here
