In this wonderful show, jazz vocalist Jo Harrop pays tribute to the sultriest songstress of all, delivering moving renditions of classics such as Fever, Why Don’t You Do Right and The Folks Who Live On The Hill. Featuring Alex Webb on piano, Henry Gilbert on bass, Joel Prime on drums and special guest Tony Kofi on alto sax.
