Jo Harrop pays tribute to Peggy Lee, the sultry songstress who Duke Ellington called ‘the queen’.
Created with MD/arranger Alex Webb (piano), and backed by a stellar group of musicians, Jo Harrop delivers moving renditions of Peggy Lee ballads as well as swinging-out on other great songs from the Lee canon, including Fever, Why Don’t You Do Right and The Folks Who Live on the Hill.
Peggy Lee (May 26, 1920 – January 21, 2002) was one of the defining figures of jazz American popular song and had a career spanning six decades. Unlike most other singers of her generation, she also distinguished herself as a songwriter, penning It’s A Good Day, I Love Being Here With You and He’s a Tramp (featured in Disney’s The Lady And The Tramp).
