Peggy Lee was one of the great figures of jazz and American popular song, with a career spanning six decades. Sinatra called her ‘regal’; Duke Ellington called her ‘the queen’. She wrote and sang for Disney’s Lady And The Tramp and had a string of hits stretching from her early days with Benny Goodman until the 1990s.
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.
