Jo Harrop & The British Standard Time
22-25 Dean St, Soho, London W1D 3RY, UK
Velvet-voiced Jo Harrop and pianist/arranger Alex Webb present an evening of British songwriting at its best. From the jazz-era masters Ray Noble and Eric Maschwitz to music theatre writers like Antony Newley, Leslie Bricusse and Lionel Bart, from the pop giants Lennon & McCartney to Elvis Costello and Amy Winehouse, Harrop and Webb mine a rich seam of material and present it in a cool, contemporary jazz format.
For this special Soho.Live Jazz Week performance expect classics like These Foolish Things, The Very Thought Of You, As Long As He Needs Me, Who Can I Turn To, Almost Blue and Norwegian Wood as well as forgotten gems by John Dankworth and Victor Feldman – along with some carefully-chosen originals and a couple of surprises.
