A talented singer inspired by the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone and Billie Holiday, Jo Harrop performs with a wonderfully clear, controlled and expressive voice. Already highly experienced she includes performances at venues such as the Jazz Cafe, Royal Albert Hall, the Sage Gateshead, Pizza Express and St. Martins In The Fields and has been featured on the likes of Courtney Pines' Radio 2 show 'Jazz Crusade', Jazz FM and BBC Radio London. Tonight Jo will be performing a programme specially put together for this unique Valentine’s show, which she describes as a set of music “filled with some of the most beautiful songs ever written, featuring fresh arrangements of songs from Cole Porter, Rogers and Hart, Jule Styne & Gershwin through to Henry Mancini, Elvis Costello, Tom Waits & Randy Newman”. Jo will be ably accompanied by her superb band featuring guitarist Jamie McCredie, pianist Sam Watts, bassist Jihad Darwish & drummer Pete Adam Hill. This promises to be a wonderful evening for anyone who likes their jazz hip, swinging and heartfelt.
