Jo Harrop pays tribute to Peggy Lee, the sultry songstress who Duke Ellington called ‘the queen’.
‘Fever’ features Alex Webb (piano), Henry Gilbert (bass), Joel Prime (drums) and special guest, world-renowned alto saxophonist Tony Kofi, with the creamy voiced Harrop delivering moving renditions of Peggy Lee ballads as well as swinging out on other great songs from the Lee canon.
Songs featured in the show include Lee’s ‘Fever’, ‘Why Don’t You Do Right’, ‘The Folks Who Live on the Hill’ and ‘He’s a Tramp’ (featured in the Disney film ‘The Lady and the Tramp’).
